Gold chain necklaces may not sound like they are going to revolutionize the fashion industry, but they are definitely becoming a hip fashion statement. And with men becoming more and more fashion conscious, men’s gold chain necklaces are selling like hot cakes.
Gold is already considered to be precious and expensive and yet perhaps traditional and stuffy in the past. In fact, many people are choosing to wear gold as a funky accessory and as an extension of their personality today. They choose designs that suit them and make them look stylish and hip.
You can buy gold chains in 14K gold and 18K gold. The K signifies the ks in gold - 24k is pure gold, which is very soft, while 14k and 18k have a few metals mixed in the gold to make it hard and durable. 14K and 18K gold make popular choices for jewelry and accessories as they can be molded into any shape easily, and these types of gold will retain their shine and luster for a long while.
The popular 14K gold necklace designs are 3.5mm 14K Gold Flat Mariner Chain, 4mm 14K Gold Yellow Pave Curb (Cuban) Chain, and 1.5mm 14K Gold Diamond Cut Rope Chain. While in 18K, many people opt for the 18K Gold 5mm Figaro Chain, 18K Gold 6mm Concave Curb Chain, and 18K Gold 4mm Curb Link (Cuban Link).
Gold necklaces are known to be chunky and heavy, especially for men, but today you can choose from so many different styles. It is important to have an idea of what design you want. It is good to know what kind of chain will suit you, and if it will look good on both formal and causal attires. If you are buying gold accessories only to wear for formal occasions, choose a style that is more mature and sophisticated. If you want to wear it casually, opt for a more modern and fashionable design that will look good on jeans and a t-shirt.
Gold is a great gift to give someone, especially for a special occasion like a birthday present or anniversary gift. Gold chain necklaces make a great present to buy for yourself as well - reward yourself for a job well done or just to jazz up your wardrobe and update your style!
