What Is a Toggle Necklace and How Do You Wear It?

You're an individual, so your jewelry should reflect that. We know there's a time and place for modest, always-classy jewelry, but sometimes bold accessories are necessary. 

Perhaps you've been evaluating your jewelry collection recently. Your usual hand-me-down chain and leather bracelet have been in your rotation for years, and you think it may be time to refresh your pieces.

In this situation, it's beneficial to purchase a few long-term classic chains and bracelets to keep around. It may also be time to jumpstart a bold style era with edgy chains that call attention to your clothing and essence. 

A toggle chain is a great piece to start with when you want to go bold. Let's learn more about this chain and how it can upgrade your closet.  

What Is a Toggle? 

You might be wondering what a toggle chain is. Essentially, this chain style features any kind of chain that fastens with a toggle clasp. This clasp design often includes a large circular opening and a vertical bar that fits through the hoop and lies flush against it to keep it fastened. It's a creative jewelry element that can contribute flare to your typical jewelry ensembles. 

Types of Toggle Necklace 

If you don't own any toggle chain jewelry, you could be wondering what the different types may look like. You may want to picture how each style might compliment the clothing and jewelry you love wearing. 

Here are a few variations of toggle necklaces:

  • Toggle chains with charms: This style of toggle necklace may include a singular charm such as a shape or letter hanging from the toggle's loop. The bar clasp would close the necklace in front to display the charm prominently. 
  • Slim toggle chains: You might come across a mid-weight toggle chain with medium-sized links connected by a toggle clasp. This style might display various link styles around the length of the necklace. 
  • Minimalistic toggle necklaces: Some toggle chains nix the charms and feature minimalistic links around the necklace's length. This style may pair well with other chains when you want to layer necklaces. 
  • Bold toggle chains: Bold toggle necklaces can be some of the most attractive of the varying toggle chain types. This style looks fantastic when worn alone with your favorite fearless fit or on bare skin with swim trunks. If you don't already feel confident in your clothing, this bold piece can encourage your self-assurance.

1. Layer Your Toggle Chain with a Slim Chain

Your toggle chain will look amazing when you wear it solo, but pairing it with slim chains is also a terrific move.

Try these slim chains for a layered look that others won't be able to ignore:

2. Wear a Chain Bracelet with Your Toggle Chain 

Another way to style a toggle chain is with a chain bracelet. If you like to keep it simple while boasting bold jewelry, this necklace and bracelet combination may fit your fashion ideals. 

Here are our picks for bracelets that pair well with bold chains:

  • Rope Bracelet: A rope bracelet is a terrific choice when you want to add a different texture to your outfit. Like all CRAFTD pieces, our CRAFTD Rope bracelet is available in your choice of high-quality silver or gold.

3. Try On a Statement Earring With Your Necklace
