Anchor & Mariner Chains

About the Anchor Chain

We're big fans of the anchor chain, or mariner chain, as it's sometimes referred. Designed to look like the chain that supports a ship's anchor, the chain features oblong links, with a cut out section at either end, into which the next link slots. The chain's inspiration is industrial and sea-faring, and chunky anchor chains definitely allow us to visualise this inspiration. But there are also dainty and fine anchor chains, which don't look industrial at all and instead look delicate, intricate and often times sparkly. These chains are particularly popular with women who love to layer their necklaces. So the anchor chain is versatile, and works well for statement jewellery as well as discreet pieces. We stock our anchor chains in sterling silver and 9ct gold, for men and for women. We stock anchor chain necklaces, bracelets and anklets, and our most popular chain is this solid gold anchor chain necklace.
