The key to showing off a beautiful pendant is a chain that doesn't call too much attention to itself. But that doesn't mean a chain must only be utilitarian. Silver chains in particular, whether made in Mexico, Scandinavia, or India, are often the sublime armatures for pendants, adding subtle character to a necklace. The A to Z of chains includes anchors and balls, barleycorns and beads, books and boxes, gourmettes and herringbones, flat links and foxtails, hooks and ladders, mesh and omega chains, and snakes and stars. Look for sterling silver chains by the likes of Georg Jensen and Tiffany.
