These chains are made of 14 k gold, which guarantees their long term durability. Please contact us if you would like to purchase 18 k gold or platinum chains.
The wheat chain is a popular choice due to its braided, woven and homogeneous appearance. It allows the pendant to take centre stage, is discreet and goes well just about everything.
Its disadvantage compared to the "snake chain", is that it is less like a the cord or a flexible tube, as each link in the chain is visible. Nevertheless, the small links create the effect of continuity. Its advantage is that ii is more durable due to the double links, and is not crease when bent.
In terms of length, 40 cm long chains are perfect for long slender necks. 45 cm long chains are ideal for slender or even average sized necks, but a 50 cm chain on an average neck is even better and allows the pendant to fall a bit lower. We also offer 55-60 cm and even 70 cm chains upon request. Please contact us HERE if you are interested in ordering one of the longer chains.
In terms of width, chains that are 1.3mm in width are durable with very small pendants, but a 1.7 mm width is more ideal for small and medium sized pendants. We would suggest wearing larger pendants on 2.1 mm chains. These sizes refer to the width of the chain itself as the ends or locks of the chain are wider.
