If a little black dress were a chain, it’d be this one. Delicate, shimmering and understated enough to put on (and never take off). 

Product Details
Dainty cable, width: 1.2mm
Length options: 15-17", 17-19", other
Adjustable by 2"
100% USA sourced
14k Gold Filled
Ease of care: 4/5

A practical balance between cost and quality, our gold-filled pieces have a thick layer of 14k gold, heat and pressure bonded to a high-quality brass core. They contain much more real gold than regular gold-plating.

Sterling Silver
Ease of care: 5/5

Solid, precious metal that lasts forever. It darkens with time, but can be polished up. Oils from your skin help prevent silver tarnish... so wear it often!

14k Rose Gold Filled
Ease of care: 3/5

Extremely similar to yellow gold-filled, rose gold has a bit of copper added to the alloy to give it a rosy hue.

14k Solid Gold
Ease of care: 5/5

A low maintenance, fine jewelry favorite that will last forever. It’s pure gold mixed with other alloys to make it more durable & give it a beautiful hue.

10k Solid Gold
Ease of care: 5/5

More durable, scratch-resistant and affordable than its 14k counterpart, 10k solid gold offers a softer, subtler tone—ideal for those who prefer a less intense yellow.

Sizing Guide
  1. Find a tool to use (string, dental floss, headphone cord, measuring tape if you have it).
  2. Find the length by wrapping it around your neck and marking it (for pendants, imagine the jewelry lower, for suspended, it should be in line).
  3. Check the length against a ruler or lay it out flat and measure with a phone app.

Alternatively: Measure an existing necklace end to end with a ruler (most accurate) or a phone app (great if you don’t have a ruler handy).

    Needed a chain for a pendant my grandmother gave me, and this was perfect. I can finally wear my grandmothers necklace again, and it brings me so much joy. Thank you GLDN for making the only good quality golden chain I could find!

    Not what I expected

    Hi. I ordered this and from the original pictures I thought the connecting rings were a lot larger. Maybe it is my fault, and I did not look closely enough, but when I received it, it is so tiny. I was pretty disappointed. I will still wear it, but I would hope the pictures you advertise appear to size.

    Even better than expected

    I was apprehensive to purchase jewelry online without seeing it in person but this chain exceeded my expectations. It’s delicate & bright and the perfect compliment to the small pendants I put on. Will definitely order from GLDN the next time I have any jewelry needs.
