Versatilatiy in a Gold Chain
May-02-2012
Keywords: Gold chain, jewelry
It’s shiny, it’s sexy, it’s stylish -- it’s gold. A gold chain is the one piece of jewelry both men and women can wear. In most cases women sport delicate designs and men wear solid styles, but a gold chain is extremely versatile.



Wear it vintage, with antique pendants, and specially engraved lockets. Indulge in it with diamonds and gemstones. Perhaps go bare, just the gold chain to match whatever you wear. There was a time when gold was a means of exchange, a time when gold ornaments adorned royalty. 

Now, gold is affordable and it is everywhere, but it hasn’t lost its lavish appeal, it is still seen as a status symbol. Gold is a precious metal which is generally alloyed with other metals, such as copper or palladium. It derives its color from the combining metal.

White gold is very sophisticated while yellow gold is plush. Gold chains in 14K and 18K are popular.  They contain an acceptable amount of pure gold while being reasonably priced. Besides the amount of karats, distinguishing factors include design. While a chain is a simple accessory, its designs have evolved from several cultures around the globe.

The Egyptians, Italians, Columbians, and Russians have all made significant contributions. With varying widths and lengths, gold chains have progressed from being an accompaniment to a pendant to being a high fashion ornament. You may have heard of Hip Hop Bling styles, designer lariats, and layered gold chain necklaces.
However, a traditional gold chain is irreplaceable. Gold chains are made with links that interlock in distinct patterns. A Figaro chain, for example, has a pattern of three curved links followed by one elongated link. A Box chain is made of squared off links as opposed to the classic curved link.

A Rope chain is made by twisting two or more strands of gold around each other. A Snake chain is made of links that fit closely together to resemble the tubular body of a snake. A Mariner chain is made of links that have a bar running through the center. Besides these chains, there are a number of fancy chain styles available in the market.

You can also find them in silver and other precious metals.  These days you have the option of purchasing gold plated and gold filled jewelry. It is better however, to stick to authentic gold because of its durability. It is tarnish resistant and therefore lasts long. It requires very little in terms of cleaning and maintenance.

Gold chains have a timeless quality. They suit every occasion, whether formal or casual. When you don’t know what kind of jewelry will look good with your outfit, just wear a gold chain. These days you can find two tone gold chains, a perfect balance of white gold and yellow gold. These chains are modern chic and urbane.

A gold chain is like a fluid filament wrapped around your neck, its grace lies in its fragility. Don’t be mistaken though, men’s gold chains also come in bolder styles, so you won’t lose your edge even as you flaunt gold jewelry. If you don’t know what to do with it, wear it with a cross pendant or a clock pendant.

You can purchase gold chains and other gold jewelry from jewelry stores online. Browse through their extensive galleries and choose wisely. The general qualm in shopping for jewelry online is that your jewelry will be of poor quality. There is nothing to worry about.  Read reviews before visiting a web store. You are likely to get your gold chain at a steal, so go online and start shopping.
