Take it from us — gold chains are having their moment. While the best men’s chain necklaces used to solely be reserved Tony Soprano-types, Michael Jordan taking a shot from the foul line in ’87, and every Caribbean uncle at your quinceñera, right now, we’re in a chainaissance. As formal menswear has become more casual and unbound by gender norms, jewelry is decidedly hip again. You’ll rarely see artists like Drake or Jack Harlow or actors like Paul Mescal out and about without a flashy gold chainlink or a bold, dangly earring.
While only six years old, men’s accessories brand Jaxxon is already leading the charge on creating everyday, yet refined, chains that you’ll want to wear yourself as much as you’ll want to gift. You might have seen their best-selling classic Cuban 5mm lately adorning the necks of everyone from legendary professional skaters like Ryan Sheckler and Paul Rodriquez to musicians like Travis Mills, and their quality build makes them one of the most trusted men’s chains brand. And you’re in luck, because just in time for holiday gift-giving season, you can get up to 50% off on their site right now.
Alongside rings, bracelets and other jewelry, Jaxxon’s necklaces can turn even the most mundane men’s outfits into something elevated and tasteful. Go with a larger pendant, and it can act as the main event, or just add one of their simple, gold chains to instantly punch up an otherwise run-of-the-mill jeans and a white tee fit. The right gold chain is like a well-fitted suit, in that it’s one of the easiest ways to add some instant charisma to your outfit, and they can be as versatile and understated as you want them to be.
Want that pop of flash peeking out from your collar, too? Starting Nov. 2, Jaxxon is also offering three for two chains for their Black Friday Early Access sale. This is an amazing deal, so you can gift one for your S.O. and your brother and pick up a chain for yourself at the same time (or get three chains for yourself and another one for free). Best of all, you have plenty of options — along with Italian-made chains crafted with 14k gold and 925 silver (not to mention rose gold and black options), their Iced Out chains are also made with stunning diamond simulants. Are you a chunky link chain kind of person? Or want a sleek and streamlined cable chain? How about a trendy pearl choker?
To help you find the luxe chain of your dreams (that won’t put your bank account into a nosedive), we’re cracking open the glass case and picking some of our favorite chains from the Jaxxon sale — from bestsellers to new arrivals alike.
Cuban 5mm Link Chain
Jaxxon’s Cuban 5mm Chain is their most popular chain for a reason — meticulously fashioned from 925 sterling coated in solid 14k gold, you can pair this under a buttoned down bowling shirt or draped over a classic white tee for trendy, yet timeless, style. It’s as durable as it is stylish too, finished with an antioxidant solution that will safeguard that shine for years to come. Available from 20″ to 26″ in length, it’s a chain that can be worn with anything, day after day.
Iced Out Cuban 5mm Link Chain
From Jaxxon’s latest collection, these iced out chains are crafted with luxury 5A grade cubic zirconia, designed to mirror the look of natural diamond without the price tag. Pair this fully studded silver Cuban link chain with a dark turtleneck sweater to really make it pop, or slip it over a dress shirt for a more casual and classy guest outfit for a wedding reception. Available in gold, silver, and black settings, it’s a simple, effective way to elevate your style.
2mm Rope Chain
Looking for something a little slimmer and understated? The rope chain has been a mainstay in men’s fashion for decades, and has only continued to rise in popularity. That’s why we like Jaxxon’s 2mm version, which has each diamond-cut link aligned on this intricate men’s chain. If your giftee (or you) don’t normally wear chains, try this one over a graphic tee to start.
