An accessory with a deep association with rap and hip-hop culture, in-your-face chain necklaces have since been refined from garish bling to jewelry that has a place in any fashion-forward man's aesthetics. Spanning the minimal designs of Heron Preston's latest drop, to the complete other end of the spectrum from COMME des GARÇONS's latest release, chain necklaces seem to be being embraced more by fashion brands now than ever.

In fact, in our round-up of favorite chain necklaces available to buy right now, we've found highlights not only from high fashion labels such as Maison Margiela, but far more budget-friendly retailers such as Urban Outfitters, too — which goes to show just how transformed the accessory has become since the days of over-sparkly dollar sign pendants.

Below, we've selected some of our favorite chains for virtually every budget, with price-points ranging between $24 and $720. In our picks, you'll see padlock options from Raikoob and Heron Preston, barbell-style chains from Random Identities, Cuban link chokers from Martine Ali, and more flex-worthy logo pendant chains from Maison Margiela. With necklaces in gold, silver, and black options, each sporting various chain widths and drops, we're confident we've found the right chain for you. If you're shopping for someone else, they make pretty special Valentine's Day gifts, too.

Scroll on to take a look at all our favorite chains to buy online.
