Small metal balls are joined by short lengths of wire to create bead chains, available in various lengths. 

 
Box Chain Necklace

Square-shaped links connect to form smooth boxes, for which this chain is named.

 
Byzantine Chain Necklace

A variation of the box chain, Byzantine chains have a unique woven texture created by the intricate oval links passing through each other.

 
Cable Chain Necklace

Cable chains are popular for holding pendants or charms. Their structure is made of small oval rings linked to form the desired chain length.

 
Criss-cross Chain Necklace

The texture of the criss-cross chain shimmers with each subtle movement. Small, flat links cross over each other to form the unique twist.

 
Cuban & Curb Chain Necklace

A popular style for men, Cuban chains (also known as curb link chains) are made of twisted oval-shaped links designed to lie flat and resist kinks.

 
Figaro Chain Necklace

Figaro chains are characterized by their patterned link structure. Typically, one long rectangular link is followed by three smaller round links.

 
Herringbone Chain Necklace

Herringbone chains lie flat and are made of short, alternating slanted links in two or more parallel rows.

 
Mariner Chain Necklace

Oval links with a diving bar through the middle of each link create this strong and kink-resistant chain. The mariner chain is named for the chain style used to anchor boats to a dock.

 
Rolo Chain Necklace

Like cable chains with their simple oval links, rolo chains are made with symmetrical round links for a heavier look.

 
Rope Chain Necklace

The rope chain is composed of two thick strands woven together giving the appearance of a twisted effect.

 
Singapore Chain Necklace

Singapore chains are durable and flexible because of their twisted style and use of flat, interwoven links.

 
Snake Chain Necklace

Flexible snake chains are named for their resemblance to a snake skin pattern. Small, wavy links join tightly to create the seemingly flat profile of this chain.

 
Wheat Chain Necklace

Wheat chains get their name for their resemblance to the top of wheat stalks. The chain's semi-rigid structure is formed by oval links woven together for a stylish textural look.
