Trend Watch: Why You Should Make Chunky Chain Your Next Statement Jewelry Purchase

We hand make a lot of chain. Our signature look is chunky — sometimes we say, “chonky” 🙃 — chain. If you've read our origin story, you know Liz started designing statement jewelry pieces for herself in the beginning. She wasn’t seeing what she wanted to wear at the boutiques and shops she visited, so she decided to make it! Fast forward to 2023 and we have been sitting patiently through what feels like a decade of the “dainty jewelry” trend...

Out with the Old: Statement Chain is Here, Baby!

Instagram ads are constantly showing us barely there chains with the faintest hint of a pendant, or earrings so tiny that Liz and I often wonder if they would go straight through our ear holes…and we aren’t saying we don’t like this jewelry! We both have a few pieces that would fall into the “delicate” category, and I myself love to layer delicate pieces with chunkier ones. However, we have both been feeling so excited and refreshed to see chunkier styles gracing the pages of some of our favorite fashion mags lately.

In fact, chunky, statement jewelry is kind of everywhere right now…from Beyonce (yes you read that correctly, Queen Bey herself) to the Spring 2023 runways, to the pages of Garden & Gun. Liz traveled recently and sent me all the amazing chunky chain ads (pictured above) that she saw in the magazines as she flew back and forth and I was so inspired, I have been wearing my gold Eliza Necklace a TON more.

Make Your Statement Jewelry YOURS

The thing I love about the Eliza (I have the bracelet and the necklace) is that I can link them together, so I really get to have three pieces of jewelry instead of just two. This means I can layer the Eliza look with anything I want!

Our chunkiest statement necklaces are the Annie and the Uma - these are pieces that are such big, bold statements that they don’t honestly layer well with other necklaces like the Eliza does (read: does not play well with others). However, they make such a powerful statement on their own, they are absolutely fit for the red carpet or your next big event (or job interview, hello confidence!).
