An attractive ladies slide chain styled off traditional vintage chains, offered in a variety of materials, link types, styles, and finishing options. All feature high quality materials we're proud to carry due to their overall appearance and durability. Silicone in each hole of all the slides enables the precision placement of the slide along the chain.
We are happy to offer this item in a multitude of configurations, all selectable from the dropdown choices above; your final price will update when you select your desired options. All of our "sweater" photos above are shown using the 'opaque black' style slide finish, except for the large fancy round slides, which are shown with an 'onyx' slide finish. If adding a connector accent to the chain, the photos are shown with the 'amethyst purple' finish.
With all the possible options we offer to finish our side chains, it was impossible to photograph every possible combination! However, we are more than happy to send you a photo before purchase of your desired options put together so you can see how your final product will look. We will need the specific items you'd like to see together. Simply send us an email
with the finishing options for each of the drop down items above that you would like to see together and within 1-3 business days, we'll get back to you with a photo of your specific combination.

- Age Description:
For historical information, photo examples, and suggested wearing styles for our pocket watch chains, please visit our
"How To Wear" Guide
The length we list for this item in the Full Description section will be for the overall worn length. This means that if you lay the chain straight and flat, the length from the end of the swivel finding to where the chain curves back on itself is the length we are indicating. For example, if it is listed as 25" long, there is approx. 1" of the swivel finding and connection hardware (ie. where you would attach your watch, locket, etc), and 48" of chain length. To create the 25" overall length, the 48" of chain length is "folded in half" and then finished with the 1" finding length to close the chain into a necklace.
Our example photos show our items against a backdrop created from a women's medium-sized sweater with the chain displayed in what we call a "double-wrapped" style. Depending on the style in which you are looking to wear your chain, we offer that for someone with a slender build or short to average height, you can expect the shown item to hang off your person similar to the photo. If you are petite, have a larger build, or are taller than average, please note the chain will hang differently off your person than shown.
As a rule of thumb on an average-build woman, if you want to wear the chain long and have the swivel reach your waistline, we recommend chains 24" or shorter for heights under 5'4", 22" to 26" for heights 5'4" to 5'8" and 24" or longer for heights over 5'8".
If you are looking to wear the chain double-wrapped, we suggest a chain between 24" and 28" in overall length for the swivel to rest above your bustline, and a chain between 26" and 30" in overall length for the swivel to rest at your bustline. Adding one of our optional connectors to your chain design will add approx. 1" to the final overall length.
