Questions About Chains?
What is the most popular necklace chain?
There is a wide array of necklace chain options, each with its own distinctive look. Your choice will depend on the effect you want to achieve, and how the necklace complements other elements of your outfit. A curb chain is one of the most common and popular designs for necklaces among both men and women. It features interconnected flat links to give a uniform appearance, and can be either slender and delicate or heavier and chunkier. A rope chain is also highly popular as the twisted pattern catches and reflects light exceptionally well. Rope chains are considered elegant and luxurious, and also add great texture to your outfit. Sterling silver and yellow gold tend to be the most common metal choices, but white or rose gold are also popular. It can depend on your skin tone and colouring, and the particular outfit or occasion. In terms of length, the princess-style chain is the most popular choice – it sits on the collarbone and is highly versatile. If your necklace is a standalone piece, you might opt for a fancier, thicker or more eye-catching chain, whereas if you plan to add a pendant as the focal point you may want your chain to be more subtle.
What are different types of jewellery chains?
Jewellery chains come in a range of styles, thicknesses, lengths, and metal tones. Chain types include the simple and uniform curb or cable chain, or a box chain with square instead of rounded links. In these styles, each link is identical in shape and size, for a completely balanced and symmetrical effect. A Singapore chain links multiple twisted segments together and is classic and versatile, while a wheat chain gives a more consistent braided effect. An omega chain differs in that it features an embedded wire plated in metal, giving the illusion and flexibility of links. Many people opt for the twisted rope chain because it adds texture and radiates decadence. Chains vary in weight and thickness, and you also need to decide what length of chain you want – a choker sits snug at the neck, a classic princess-style chain reaches the collarbone, while a longer opera or rope chain extends below the bust. At Secrets Shhh, we have a wide selection of chains in sterling silver, yellow, white or rose gold. If you’re not sure what style of chain to go for, it’s best to visit us in person at your nearest Secrets Shhh boutique to get a feel for the different options.
How much do gold chains cost in Australia?
The amount you pay for a gold chain will depend on the carat weight, as well as the overall thickness, length and style of your chain. Prices also vary between yellow, white and rose gold chains. At Secrets Shhh, our gold chains range from $149 for a 40cm rope chain in 14ct white gold, to $749 for a 55cm adjustable wheat chain in 10ct white gold.
How can you tell if a gold chain is real?
A good place to start is to check for a manufacturer’s hallmark, which should be engraved somewhere on the jewellery. This is a good indication of authenticity, but there are also some other quick and easy ways to test the quality of your chain. Solid gold is dense so will sink if placed in water, whereas a lower quality and weight of metal that has just been plated in gold may float. If you notice any rust or tarnishing after exposing your gold jewellery to moisture, this is also a sign that it’s not real gold. Another at-home test is to drip a few drops of white vinegar onto your chain – if the metal changes colour during this “acid test”, it’s not real gold. If you want to be absolutely sure about the authenticity and quality of your gold chain, bring it in to your local Secrets Shhh boutique and our specialists will be able to verify it for you.
What are the different types of chain links?
The various types of links in a chain can create very different visual effects, as well as determining how a chain moves, hangs and sits against the skin. Some chains are made up of an interconnected series of identical links for perfect uniformity and symmetry. These include classic cable chains, curb chains (where the links are flattened rather than rounded), and box chains (where the links are square). The designs are very similar, but the differing link styles give each chain a distinctive character. In contrast to the consistency and symmetry of these chain styles is the figaro chain that features a pattern of longer and shorter links to create an eye-catching design. The links in a mariner chain are particularly distinctive as they feature a bar down the centre. A snake chain is smooth, sleek and flexible thanks to very tightly linked, small rings. To discover the visual appeal of each different link style for yourself, visit your nearest Secrets Shhh store and find your perfect match.
