Choosing the Perfect Chain

Discover below our recommendations and find the perfect chain for you.

Can I wear any necklace pendant on any chain?

We do not recommend that our clients wear medium or large pendants on our more delicate chains to prevent damage or breakage to the chain. Our Finetrace, Catena Fine, Minaret and Isla chains should only be worn with small, light pendants such as our Suffolk Cross or Alice Alphabet Initial Pendant.  

Cassandra’s Chain Paring Recommendations

Quote Pendants

Cassandra loves to pair a quote pendant with a Marine Heavy chain for a modern, youthful style.

Cassandra recommends the following chains for quote pendants:

Heavytrace | Marine Light | Marine Heavy | Ilex | Catena Medium | Belcher Mini | Belcher Light | Belcher Heavy | Beaumarchais Figaro |

Lage Necklace Pendants

For our larger necklace pendants such as the Roi Soleil large necklace pendants Cassandra loves to pair her pendant with a Beaumarchais Figaro chain by attaching the pendant into the clasp mechanism.

Cassandra recommends the following chains for large necklace pendants:

| Marine Heavy | Ilex | Belcher Mini | Belcher Light | Belcher Heavy | Beaumarchais Figaro |

The Chatelaine Necklace Pendant

Our Chatelaine Necklace Pendant is perfect for those wanting to wear a mixture of charms together. Cassandra often wears her Chatelaine with the Elixir Heavy mixed metal chain for the perfect two-tone look.

Cassandra recommends the following chains for the Chatelaine Necklace Pendant:

| Marine Heavy | Ilex | Belcher Mini | Belcher Light | Belcher Heavy | Beaumarchais Figaro |

Weighty Necklace Pendants

Some of our larger necklace pendants require a more
substantial chain due to their weight. We recommend wearing weighty necklace pendants
such as our Brinjal Indian Marriage Necklace Pendant with the following chains:

| Ilex | Belcher Heavy | Beaumarchais Figaro |

Looking After Your Chain

All Cassandra Goad chains are crafted to the highest quality. However, like all jewellery, necklace chains must be treated with care to maintain their integrity.

1.

We never recommend hanging large or heavy pendants off our fine chains as this can cause the chain to break under the unexpected weight.

2.

We do not recommend sleeping in your chains as chains can get caught or stuck as you sleep and become damaged.

3.

Put on your chains after applying body lotions and cosmetics to prevent your cosmetics congesting the clasp mechanism and affecting its effectiveness.

4.

Keep small children and pets away from your chains. Children or pets pulling or tugging on your chains can cause them to break.

5.

Always remove you chain by unclasping it. Removing your chain over your head can cause the links to become damaged and elongated.

Choosing a Chain Length

What length should I go for?

We offer all our chains in 16" and 18" lengths. 20", 22" and 30" length chains are also available in our larger designs.

We find chains in the 18" length are the most popular option. We recommend 16" length chains for children or clients with small children who want to keep their chain out of the reach of little hands.
