About The Belcher Chain
The belcher chain is a classic British chain, originating right here in the UK. It’s thought to be named after 19th-century boxer James 'Jem' Belcher. We’ll probably never know whether the chain is directly named after him, or after the ring used to tie the belcher scarves also popularised by James Belcher, but one thing’s certain - this masculine chain style has been turning heads for centuries.
A belcher chain is a robust chain as, when pulled, the links alternate 180 degrees. Its durability makes it a top notch choice of everyday men’s jewellery as it is less prone to accidental damage or link breakage. To compare belcher chains with other chain styles, head over to our Gold Chains Guide.
