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 larger than our Dainty Paperclip Chain and smaller than our Bold Paperclip Chain. If you're looking for a classic small paperclip necklace, this one's for you! 

Product Details
Chain width: 2.5mm
length: 16", 18", 20", 22"
Clasp anywhere on chain for custom length
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).

    Small Paperclip Chain 14k Gold Fill / 20″
    Rated 5 out of 5 stars
    versatile everyday statement

    Very pleased with my first GLDN purchase. I knew I wanted a simple chain that wasn't too dainty/delicate (I would worry about it breaking or not matching my style) but would also go well with a lot of my wardrobe, and this fits the bill. I purchased the 20" because I wanted it long enough to wear under/around turtlenecks and collared shirts. But I also love that it can be made to be almost any length you like, no extender needed, since the clasp can fasten anywhere along the chain itself (unlike the two smaller sizes of paperclip chain that GLDN sells, I believe). Finally - although the chain isn't dainty, it isn't heavy either, and it's actually still thin enough to thread other GLDN pendants onto it - at least, it fits the Florence oval pendant I ordered on a different chain a couple weeks later! I like how it looks better without the pendant (the Florence seems a bit too small for the chain, to my tastes) but it's something I wondered about before purchasing & I'm glad to know it does fit!

    Wonderful new addition!

    Just what I wanted. The best quality, packaging and product. I continue to buy from GLDN for myself and family, never been disappointed. I ordered the 15”-17” mine fits more like 15”. The clasp is a little hard to get on day to day, but I’d rather that than one that is REALLY obvious when it’s turned around to the front.

    Love!

    So pretty and the packaging made it feel extra special. It is just the size I was looking for to layer. The chain adds some texture but still looks delicate.
