This curated selection has been handcrafted mostly in recycled 925 silver. Here you will find aesthetically excellent pieces, that are above all, original and handmade by designers who value quality over quantity.
Choosing the best silver chains

♦ Choose the right length for your sterling silver chain

925 silver or sterling silver (SS) is internationally accepted as the best material for silver jewelry as it's more durable than 999 (99.9% pure) silver.
Is a sterling silver chain made of real silver?
Yes! Sterling silver chains are the real deal. It is an alloy of 92.5% pure silver combined with other metals. Other silver hallmarking standards used in designer silver jewelry include German 835 (83.5% pure) and Scandinavian 720 (72% pure silver).
Silver chain lengths
Before choosing your chains in silver, you should be aware of the different lengths and understand which length looks best on you and how you would like to wear the chain (in layers or with/without pendants).
Chains are crafted with an adjustable length, giving a very useful extra 2cm to change the look and fit. Depending on your styling choices, you may also want to buy silver chains in varying lengths for your chain collection.
