Fashion trends come and go, but one that steadily increased over the course of 2022 was the paperclip necklace. According to Google’s annual Holiday 100 report, searches for paperclip necklaces increased by 90%.

No, the necklace isn’t literally made with paperclips. Rather the necklace features gold paperclip-like chain links that can either be delicate and feminine or chunky and edgy — the way you style it is up to you. It’s the type of necklace that can be worn on its own, or it looks great layered with multiple pieces.

If you like the look and want to treat yourself before the end of the year — or you’re still shopping for gifts — consider getting a paperclip necklace. And take a look below for some of the best-selling styles across the web.
