I’m not really a person for jewelry, bags are more up my alley. However, since chains are often an integral part of bags (the Bottega Veneta Chain Pouch being a prime example), I do sometimes take a penchant towards them. When I read Bringing Home the Birkin (it’s a delightful book!), I was briefly obsessed with the Chain d’Ancre from Hermes that apparently brought good luck to the author. However, Hermes is never on a normal person’s shopping list, so I had to let go of any dreams of ever owning one.
That was last year in November. Fast forward one year and one month, it seems like I have at last found a suitable alternative to that darned bit of Hermes goodness right here at SSENSE. So this is it y’all, the most amazing chain from the makers of the highly sought-after Chain Pouch, the Bottega Veneta Large Silver Chain Necklace!
Alright, I know you’re probably about to start blasting me off because it’s a necklace and you’re likely saying which guy wears a necklace, right? A lot of people, apparently, from Shawn Mendes to Brad Pitt to Chris Hemsworth and DiCaprio, so guys, you needn’t fret. Personally, however, I think I’d rather twist it on my wrist Michael Tonello style. How would you wear it guys? I’ll be eager to hear from you. But first, let me just give you a quick rundown of what this Chain actually is.
Made in Italy, this (not entirely symmetrical) square chain link necklace is made of 925 sterling silver with BV’s logo and hallmarking stamps at lobster clasp fastening. The full length of it measures approximately 21.5″ and ensures it drapes gracefully and comfortably around your neck and is currently available at SSENSE for $2950 USD.
Now tell me how you would style this stunner?
