Short jewelry chains are one of the best options for easily customizing your look! So what are they? See above for a few examples.
As you can see, these chains
are super versatile, once you know how to use them. You can choose from a wide variety of materials, including titanium, steel, sterling silver and solid gold. Sterling silver will tarnish, but it's not worn directly in a piercing. So this isn't a big deal. If you like your silver dark, let it form that beautiful patina. It can turn almost black with time. If you prefer it shiny, a simple cloth can polish it right up, or you can use jewelry cleaner.
For any chains that are gold or silver plated, you'll want to clean them gently with warm water and soap, drying thoroughly. But in practice, these kinds of chains don't really get that dirty.
