Did Kanye West Launch A New Jewelry Trend?

Submitted by on September 20, 2010 – 1:01 pm3 Comments

Kanye West rocked a new style of rapper bling at the 2010 MTV VMAs, with multiple gold chains in varying lengths and widths around his neck. He was also seen wearing the same piece while during New York Fashion Week (see photo above).

This style’s been popular with the ladies for some time, but does it work for men?

With Kanye being a trendsetter in both music and fashion, we can’t help to wonder if this chain will catch on and become the new “It” piece for men.

It’s definitely more wearable than his chain at the 2010 BET Awards:

A simple way to get this look if you can’t exactly go out and drop the dough for Kanye’s chain? Purchase multiple gold chains in different lengths, widths and designs, and rock them all together.

Here are a few we like:

14K Gold Overlay 42″ Cuban Necklace

18K Gold Plated Stainless Steel Curb Link 24″ Chain

Wheat 14K Solid Yellow Gold Chain (Multiple Sizes)

If you’re a fan of Kanye’s Egyptian-inspired piece, you can get a toned-down (read: more wearable) version right here on DrJays.com:
