Many a times customers complain that the different chain links that they buy are usually poor in their material selection and thus don’t last long. They say that the link chain that they purchased was not only expensive but also came with a promise of long life and a prolonged duration of customer support.

It is important of note that the cause of poor durability of chain links might be rooted in two factors. First, the material choice in the making of the chain link, as usually pointed by customer, is substandard. Thus, when the piece of jewelry is worn for prolonged period of time, it fails to sustain itself and breaks down.

Second, if the chain link of your choice is actually made of decent materials and yet still fails to live a long life, then the cause of its failure in face of regular use is that it is not designed well. The good quality units that were joined together to make the whole were connected in a weak fashion, thus they break in face of force.

Italianaro eliminates both these possibilities by choosing the high-quality materials and great techniques in the manufacturing of the product. This is why our Cuban link chains last long and retain their elegance and shine even when used for a long period of time.

The high-quality materials in question that go in to the making of different chain links are acquired from reliable sources that sustain ethical, moral and legal standards in their production and delivery. Ethics and morality are ingrained in the business model of the Italianaro.


Gold Cuban Link Chains

Namely, the most loved and revered material in the choice of Cuban Link Chains is the Gold. Since, the Italianaro’s jewelry, as its name suggest, is based on Italian design techniques, Gold is dearly and wholly used in the design and manufacture of most of the Chains that you see on our store.

Be it 24k Cuban Link Chain or 8k one, the gold used in its making is as per the expectation of the customer and the price range of the chain. We take pride in the humble efforts that we put in the manufacturing of these beautiful products and the high quality of service we deliver to our valued customers.

As is widely known to our customers, Solid Gold remains the most valuable and perhaps the most loved material of choice when it comes to jewelry. It is indeed the one of the most valuable material in the world. The solid gold we chose to use in the making of our product is done with the thought in mind that it should not wear off.

The color of your Gold Cuban Link Chain will not scuff or discolor over time, thanks to the high standard of plating techniques that we use. This platting is done on the Stainless-Steel or Brass. It is also done besides the sterling silver, if the customer wishes to have multi-color chain.

It is necessary to care of your different chain links if you wish to have long lasting shine and glow of your Cuban link chain. Do follow the concomitant instruction manual that comprehensively lists what should be done and what should be done in this regard. This usually includes the tips on how to wash your chain links and how to store them for a prolonged period of time.

Silver Cuban Link Chains

The world of Different Chain Links is not limited to the Gold. The buck doesn’t stop there. The second in rank to the Gold is the esteemed and all-time favorite Silver. Its ease of affordability, beauty and elegance all chip in to make it a popular material that goes into the making of the Chains.

Perhaps, the most notable iteration of the Cuban Link Chains is the 925 Sterling Silver. It is valuable for it is made from the 92.5% pure Silver and 7.5% Copper. It is further plated with the strong and aesthetically pleasing Rhodium to bring a luster to it.

In case someone wishes to buy a cheaper alternative to silver chains, we have also made that available in the ever-expanding collection on our store. They are similar in shine and luster to the original silver, and yet they are made of altogether different material. These materials, needless to mention, are also beautiful and reliable.

Filling vs Platting Gold Chains

Different Chain Link can also be seen from the eye of the filling that is done unto them or the platting is coated on the chains. Usually, the two are confused thus it is important to keep an eye out for the difference that is present between them.

Gold platting is one of the techniques that Italianaro uses among many of its crafting methods. Premium quality gold chains are brought into existence by the use of Gold platting on the chains. The Brass or Stainless-Steel material is dipped into the Gold, and this is how it comes to be called as Gold Platting.

After the platting is done on the Brass or Stainless Steel base the Gold makes up to be around 1 percent of the overall material weight. Any less then the one percent will not be seen as the Gold Platting. The technique of gold platting helps us bring the same outlook of the Gold Bar on a regular chain and that too at an affordable price.

Sometimes another technique is also used which is called as the Gold Filling. The Gold Filled Cuban Link Chains are equally impressive and posses the higher standards of longevity and durability. As a result the usually cost more than the Gold Platting technique chains.

Just like the other method, in Gold Filling, the stainless steel or brass base is dipped in the Gold. After this, it is taken through the mechanical bonding process. This ensures that the gold remains attached to  its base in a stronger fashion.

In case of the Gold Filling, the layer is much thicker as compared to the Gold Platting. In fact, the Gold constitutes as the 5% of the overall weight of the Chain. This is the main reason behind the long life of the chain and its prolonged shine and color.

Different Chain Links that we see are usually designed around the idea that the consumer would like to wear them in the shape of the Choker, Bracelet or a Necklace. It is a reductionist view that limits the capabilities that different link chains possess.
