Bowery Curb Chain Necklace
The curb chain is typically reserved for special-occasion or statement wear, because most of those we see are made up of large links that are on the chunkier side. But our Bowery curb chain is made of smaller links fashioned from not-too-thick wire, so you can definitely wear it as an everyday chain. Wear it solo, or layer it with other chains—either way, it’s just the thing to add an edgy touch to your neckline. Secures with a rectangular lobster claw clasp. Comes in sterling silver or gold vermeil, and in five (5) different lengths.
At the moment, curb chain necklaces are made to order, so please allow up to two (2) weeks before your order is shipped. (But please welcome the surprise if we can get it to you faster than that!)
- Link size: 4.74 mm x 6 mm
- Finished chain thickness: 1.70 mm
- Modern everyday essential
- A standout on its own, but also great as a layering piece
- Goes well with any neckline
- Comes in five (5) different lengths
- Finished necklace made by New Yorkers, using high-quality silver chain from Italy
- This particular style is only available in silver or gold vermeil, and not in 14K gold
By virtue of its very nature, the curb chain will always give a heavier, more intense look and feel (compared to other chains with links that are not tightly interlocked). But our Bowery chain has just the right thickness—and is lightweight enough—to pass as everyday staple! You will never want to take it off!
Bowery Curb Chain Necklace
Does RIVA New York make this curb chain in-house?
While we manufacture most of our chains in-house at our Brooklyn, NY, facility, the curb chain we use for our Bowery necklaces and Bowery bracelets is sourced from Italy. The finished necklaces and bracelets, however, are assembled by us!
Is this style available in solid gold?
At the moment, the item you see on this page is only available in sterling silver and gold vermeil. Hopefully we will be able to offer this in 14K gold in the future.
I am purchasing this item as a gift. Is there a way for me to include a personal note with the shipment?
By all means! Please reach out to us within 48 hours of placing the order to request for a personal note to be included in your order. Send an e-mail to email@example.com, include the exact note you would like us to write/include. We will then write the note on a card, and send to you (PDF or photo) for approval. If you would like to write the note yourself, we recommend having the order shipped to you first, and then we will include a blank card for you to write your personal note on; you would then be responsible for shipping your gift to the recipient.
Good to Know
There's no middleman here, since your RIVA New York pieces literally beeline from our benches to your shipping box, so you can rest assured that you won't see insane markups from us. One of our goals for 2025 is to be more transparent with our costs!
Made by New Yorkers, Kinda
Although the chain part comes preassembled from our vendor in northern Italy (full disclosure) who share our values in terms of quality and respect for workers, the finished piece is made with tender loving care by talented artisans in our Brooklyn, NY, facility.
We are a small business and, as such, it is easy and important for us to be intimate with our customers. We treat everyone like family, and that’s a promise! Feel free to contact us if you have questions or if you need help, and we’ll be there (not literally, but you get the drift)!
We See You, Shining!
Protect That Shine
As much as we love the look of sterling silver, it does have some pitfalls. Unfortunately, silver is known to tarnish from exposure to oxygen and moisture over time. And although tarnish can be avoided by cleaning, and removed by polishing, we at RIVA use a more proactive solution: rhodium plating! The chemical properties of rhodium make it ideal for adding a protective coat around silver pieces. The hard exterior makes your piece of silver jewelry piece more resistant to scratches or tarnishing, and adds a brighter shine! Click here to learn more about rhodium plating.
