The A-Z of Missoma Chains

Looking for a chain reaction? You're in luck. Our iconic chain necklaces and bracelets come in a variety of styles – a mix of classic, more traditional shapes and bespoke links you won't find anywhere else. From sterling silver to gold vermeil, delicate to statement, it's time to find your missing link. What are the different types of chains, you ask? Let's get into it.

Four Tips For Styling Chains

The ultimate way to express your individuality, here are our four tips to wearing them.

1. Clip & Collect

Personalisation for you and you only. Customise your chain with clip-on pendants, or layered with other charms.

2. Feeling Delicate

Make any outfit pop with simple chains that you can rely on. The versatile style we always turn to? It's got to be a snake chain.

3. Make A Neckmess

The ‘beachy hair’ equivalent, pile multiple necklaces on with confidence, contrasting different textures and lengths for the ultimate ‘mess’.

4. Wear Them On Your Wrist

Don’t forget bracelet chains, which are made for stacking high. Whether you’re customising with a pendant or pairing similar styles, mix metals for all the added impact.

Your ABCs 

Look no further than these Missoma staples, the chain designs we're known for. From the chunky Axiom to the lightweight Bobble, this is one chain of command you'll want to be a part of. 

Axiom Chain

An iconic everyday gold chain with interlocking links and featuring a unique, invisible fastening. Or, go Deconstructed with an asymmetrical take on the classic. Our tip? Make yours ultra-personal with detachable clip-on pendants

Aegis Chain

Inspired by strong and stable bonds, this lightweight chunky design will become your everyday armour – 'Aegis' means shield. 

Bobble Chain

A go-to for our pendant necklaces or as a simple delicate chain, this sleek necklace with bobble detailing gives your décolletage the ultimate boost.

Coterie Chain

Featuring a striking combination of plain and twisted links, this statement chain (with a twist) is inspired by the movement of ropes and bonds.

A base layer for your everyday styling with flattened interlocking links, flat, filia and round curb chains are jewellery box staples if we ever saw them. Layer with a delicate choker.
