A Basic Chain: A Must Have In Your Jewelry Collection And A Great Gift Idea - Boutique Wear RENN

A Simple Chain: A Must Have In Your Jewelry Collection

There are several reasons why someone might suggest that everyone should own a simple basic chain as a piece of jewelry. In this article, I will explain why I think that everyone needs to own a simple classic chain and why it is my go-to gift for everyone.

A simple chain, a versatile accessory

First of all, a simple chain is very versatile, as it can be worn with any outfit and for any occasion. Not only can it complete a very casual and simple everyday look, but it can also elevate a very classy outfit for a formal occasion. It can be worn alone if you are looking for a minimalist look or it can also be layered with other necklaces, making more of a statement look. You can wear it by itself, or you can add pendants to it.

Timeless jewelry that won't go out of style

In addition, a basic chain is such a great timeless piece of jewelry that will never go out of style. Unlike trendier pieces, a simple basic chain is a classic that will look just as fashionable in 20 years from now. It can also be passed down through generations, making it a great family heirloom.

An affordable piece of jewelry

Another reason why basic chains are a must have is that they are usually more affordable than other pieces of jewelry that include pendants or stones. This makes it very accessible to a wide range of people, or even just a great place to start if you are looking to build a whole jewelry collection. In any necklace layering, we always suggest wearing at least one simple chain, ideally as the shortest necklace. See our layering tips here.

A simple chain is a great gift idea

In terms of finding a perfect gift for a loved one, or even for a gift exchange, simple chains are always my go-to for similar reasons that were mentioned above. 

If you do not have a very specific gift request from someone, offering a simple chain makes it a great gift that seems personal. Often, they might want to add a pendant on it, which makes the gift much more meaningful to them. Another way they might start wearing it is as their daily necklace or for special events. Both ways make this gift seem a little more personal because it will follow them through meaningful moments.


Simple chains are so versatile that you can be sure they will like it, no matter who they are. Simple chains are unisex, affordable, timeless, and more.
