Iconic, chic and reflects the light like no other.

 

Add a subtle statement to your look with a silver or gold paperclip chain in your chosen length—sublime as a choker, stacking chain or longer chain for your favorite GLDN pendants. Its design makes it easy to adjust and wear at any length (even as a lariat necklace)! 

 

This piece is even smaller than our Small Paperclip Chain and larger than our Mini Paperclip Chain. If you're looking for a dainty piece with just enough shimmer, this one's for you! 

Product Details
Chain width: 1.9mm
15-17", 17-19" or custom length
Adjustable - can clasp anywhere along the chain
Materials
14k Gold Filled
Ease of care: 4/5

A practical balance between cost and quality, our gold-filled pieces have a thick layer of 14k gold, heat and pressure bonded to a high-quality brass core. They contain much more real gold than regular gold-plating.

Sterling Silver
Ease of care: 4/5

Solid, precious metal that lasts forever. It darkens with time, but can be polished up. Oils from your skin help prevent silver tarnish... so wear it often!

Sizing Guide
  1. Find a tool to use (string, dental floss, headphone cord, measuring tape if you have it).
  2. Find the length by wrapping it around your neck and marking it (for pendants, imagine the jewelry lower, for suspended, it should be in line).
  3. Check the length against a ruler or lay it out flat and measure with a phone app.

Alternatively: Measure an existing necklace end to end with a ruler (most accurate) or a phone app (great if you don’t have a ruler handy).

FAQs

All you need to know about the Dainty Paperclip Chain.

From how to care tips to delivery, here are our most-asked questions.

It really depends on your skin tone and personal style. Both 14k gold fill and sterling silver are timeless, long-lasting metals that are easy to care for and made to wear 24/7. For more information on our metals, check out our jewelry metal guide.

Our made-to-order timeframes are listed on each product page! It typically takes us around 4-7 takes to handcraft this piece, but this may change based on holidays or busy periods. For current transit times, refer to our shipping options page.

Choose our 15-17” length or 17-19” length (each adjustable by 2”) or opt for a custom-length chain if you’d like something shorter or longer.

You can, but only if you use gentle soaps and clean water—no chlorine, please! If you do shower in your piece, we always recommend drying thoroughly afterward. However, to ensure your piece looks pristine for as long as possible, we do recommend removing your piece before each shower.
