    We use "key ring" in the US, as well. Interestingly, it doesn't appear in our WR Collins Dictionary (BE), but the online Oxford has it.

    To me a key chain is a metal chain attached to a belt at one end with a key ring at the other, used by men. I have a key chain on my handbag, except it's a stretchy plastic cord.
    Key chains are sometimes a male fashion accessory, heavy, and with a lot of large pretend keys attached, which give an air of power and can be used as a weapon.

    Thank you again .That's what a key chain is. I use something like these ones but not as ugly as them.
