While some of its choicest fashion moments have not stood the test of time, many of the looks associated with 1970’s fashion have been so ubiquitous in the decades that followed that they are now considered classics. You can never go wrong with a fabulous yellow gold chain to make a bold statement and channel your inner Disco Queen. With the variety of links and lengths available, gold chains are also a great way to express one’s personality, and dealers like Laurie Geller from Geller & Co. always have a wide range of hand-selected options procured from across the globe.
Chainmail was originally invented in medieval times as a form of body armor, and semblances of the technique have long been applied to jewelry.

A sleek, chainmail necklace and matching bracelet are sure-to-be-conversation starters and can turn the most understated choice of clothing into a remarkable ensemble.
