Before unveiling our selection, let’s back up a little. As a reminder, we have to recall that chains became really popular in the 1970s. It was paired with iconic fashion pieces such as Lavallière collars:  a garment accessory similar to  a bow tie that can be worn on top of cardigans, velvet blouses, long and bohemian skirts.

In short, the neo-chic bourgeois style, a BCBG 70’s look, accessorized with jewelry of all types of chains, embodied by emblematic figures of the 20th century like Romy Schneider.

A little later, at the dawn of the 2000s, chains, often adorned with diamonds – just to set the spirit, made its comeback on the looks of the greatest rappers in history such as Pharrell Williams, 50 Cent, Kanye West or Tupac.
