Most people who wear silver jewelry own several sterling silver chains and wear them on a regular basis. They are attractive and affordable when compared to those made of other precious metals. They are very versatile – there are many styles and types, and they can be worn as bracelets, chokers, anklets and necklaces.

The most basic type is simple – a link – in – link chain, called a Cable. Many designs are variations of the cable. The curb is a flattened cable. The Figaro style is flat like a curb, but has three short links, then a long stretched out link. Anchor, Mariner and Gucci designs have a bar across the center of the link. Rolos are made in a similar way to cables, with wide circular close-fit links.

They can also be very complicated in design – for example, the Rope or Byzantine styles are very complex in structure. These chains are made with links, but are assembled into intricate patterns.

Complex designs made with ring shaped links are examples of chainmaille. There are two general types – flat and round.

Most European chainmaille patterns produce flat, wide fabric-like strips that can be widened further to make armor – the chainmaille garments worn by Knights in Medieval Europe. This ancient ring weaving technique is being used today to make gorgeous silver jewelry.

Round chainmaille is very popular today worn as jewelry. Examples of designs made this way are double rope, Queens chain, Jens Pind, foxtail and Byzantine chains. Most are handcrafted because machines cannot easily handle the complicated assembly steps needed to produce this type of design.

Most commercially available silver chain comes from Italy and is machine made. These are good quality and there are many styles available. They look very bright when they are new because after they are assembled they are plated with .999 fine silver, giving them a whiter appearance.

American manufacturers produce excellent quality jewelry chain, mostly in Rhode Island. It is produced in smaller quantities and is generally sold in better quality jewelry stores and department stores. Much of it is sold in bulk lengths to manufacturing jewelers who use it as a design component in silver jewelry — key rings, eyeglass holders, bookmarks, ID holders and more.

Modern production techniques and innovative design have made silver chains more stylish, popular and affordable than ever before. Wear one today – you’ll love it!
