The last several years have amassed a cult following of dainty jewelry. Earrings, stacking rings, layering necklaces, and other minimalist trinkets have infiltrated the fashion community in such an all-consuming way that it’s little surprise the pendulum is swinging swiftly in the opposite direction toward chunky chain jewelry.

This isn’t the first time chunky chains have made an appearance, of course. The jewelry trend has been spotted throughout the years on runways like Alexander Wang, Versace, and even Celine. And while the bold look is sure to return down the road, this time around feels fresh and relevant for 2020. Ahead, shop our chunky chain picks right now to elevate your wardrobe.
