Gold jewelry has a timeless quality -- it never goes out of style! Among precious metals, gold is highly valued and much desired. Gold chains are the simplest form of jewelry, and they’ve been around for centuries. Yet, they are also the most fashionable accessories you will find.

It is believed that less is more, and nothing can exemplify that belief like gold chains can. They are classy, comfortable, and long lasting. You don’t need an occasion to wear gold chains; they can accompany a casual T-shirt. However, they always look exceptional with evening wear.

Women are spoiled for choice when it comes to jewelry while men rarely have any options. Fortunately gold chains make perfect necklaces for men as well. These necklaces originated in Egyptian and Roman empires, but today they are popular in several cultures.

Gold is a soft metal, so it is often alloyed with other metals. The number of karats indicates the amount of gold in the alloy used to make your jewelry.  You will find gold chains in different colors such as yellow, white, red, and rose. These colors are obtained by combining pure gold with other metals.

Yellow gold, for example, is a blend of gold, silver, and copper. Rose gold is a mix of copper and gold while white gold is a combination of palladium and gold. You might even come across rare alloys such as green gold and blue gold. These days white gold and yellow gold are often woven together to make two-tone gold chains.
Gold is a great investment, and if you purchase gold chains online, you are likely to get them at discounted prices. These chains are available in slim and solid sizes in varying lengths and widths. You also have a range of styles to choose from: Miami Cuban, Milano Rope, Byzantine, Valentino, Figaro, or Franco chain styles.

The market is bursting with varieties of gold chains. Consider the curb chain which resembles a horse bridle or the snake chain which has tightly interlocking links that remind one of the great serpents. Box chains and link chains are the most modest of the lot. Box chains have links with squared off edges while link chains have them curved.

The Figaro chain is a sought after Italian design, it is made by connecting a single large link with three smaller ones in an alternating pattern. Such chains are commonly worn by men. If you want a chain that will truly glisten, opt for rope chains. They are made by intertwining two or more gold chains.

While you can wear your chain as it is, gold chains are best worn with pendants. Men can opt for dog tags and bold crosses while women can choose gemstones and pretty lockets. Gold chains don’t always have to be shiny; you can also stick to dull gold for an antique look.

If you need to shop for jewelry, gold chains are preferable because they match every color and any garment. You are never going to outgrow them, and they are never going to tarnish. It is important to note that chances of discoloration vary as per the amount of gold in your jewelry.

Therefore, 18K and 14K gold chains are recommended, especially for men who aren’t as careful with their jewelry as women are. Gold chains also make fitting presents for your loved ones on Birthdays, Anniversaries and special occasions. They are so delicate yet so tasteful.

Adorn your neck with gold chains and you’re sure to catch everybody’s eye. If you’re shy, don’t worry, gold also has a way of being unassuming while being stately.
