Since the emergence of hip-hop in the 1970’s, chains have appeared on every rapper’s neck – from Kurtis Blow to Migos, and 50 cent along the way.
Whether opulent and diamond-studded or minimalist and golden, chains have emerged as the ultimate statement piece worn by rappers to show off their wealth. But with fashion taking cues from hip-hop culture, and streetwear aesthetics taking over luxury fashion, it’s safe to say that chains have definitely made their way to the mainstream.
