What Is A Belcher Chain?
The belcher chain is a classic British chain, originating right here in the UK and is thought to be named after 19th-century boxer James 'Jem' Belcher. Its design consists of interlocking uniform D-shaped links which are wider than they are thick. This makes them a robust piece of jewellery, as the links can also rotate 180 degrees when pulled. Its durability makes it a top-notch choice for everyday men’s jewellery as it is less prone to accidental damage or link breakage.
There are many styles of belcher chain to choose from, all varying in size and thickness. There are also different lengths of belcher chain available so you can choose a length which suits you and your outfit, whether you’re wearing it to work, casually or to a social event.
