Box chains have square links joined together in the same way as the round links in the belcher chain.
A box chain is sturdy and compact but fluid.
Like the belcher chain, box chains are popular with both sexes.
Box chains are often used to hang a pendant. A larger pendant usually needs a substantial chain not only for strength but also to balance the size of the gemstone and create the look of a composite necklace.
Box chain necklaces are of course square in profile but in wear they twist and turn and offer edges to catch the light. When these edges are diamond cut, they provide more facets to catch the light and make for a beautiful sparkly necklace. This makes the box design an excellent candidate for diamond cutting.
Our box chains are diamond cut and available in 2mm and 3.1mm widths. They look exquisite worn alone but fabulous with a pendant - particularly one with a faceted surface.
