Epitomising the paradox of life, the chain has been a symbol of both eternal love and human suffering. Gold jewellery adorned the necks of kings and leaders and expressed enduring human affection, while metal balls and chains inflicted pain and misery among prisoners. Today, the chain is a perennial and classic feature in jewellery and fashion — always bringing out the panache in every piece. At the crux of the chain’s existence lies the flair to render a distinctive and opulent detail to luxury items. Dainty, chunky, gold, platinum, single jack, or double loop — the variations are as infinite as its function and existence.
