Miami Cuban Link Chains, also known as Cuban chains, are a special hip-hop jewelry. The chain links are thick, strong, as well as have a gold-plated surface which makes the chain look shining. Cuban chains are often regarded by men as a way to show their masculine appearance and heavyweight. There are also different types of Cuban link chains, among which is the fully iced out Cuban necklace. But since we are not a jewelry expert, we usually don’t know how to distinguish between a superior one and an inferior one. In this passage, 4 simple tips will be presented on how to select a qualified Cuban chain.
1. Gold Purity/Gold Color
When buying a gold chain, one of the most important factors that defines the price, is the type of gold the chain is made and of course how it is made. There are mainly two types of gold chains in the current market. One is pure gold and another, gold plated. But nowadays, we can hardly see jewelry made of pure gold because the costs are too high. So we gonna focus on how to select a qualified gold-plated one.
In the process of jewelry-making, makers will usually use pure gold to mix up with other with other steels to become an alloy, which is what most of the jewelry is made of. However, in order to minimize the costs, many undesirable businesses may mix gold with other inferior metals to deceive consumers. A traditional way of examining a gold coin is biting as well as finding flaws, which is quite unrealistic when we are purchasing a piece of jewelry. However, there is one simple way to find the good plated one, which is by the color. If a Cuban chain is made of gold with other best materials, it will certainly look flattened and shiny while the one with impurity substances will look tarnish. And by consequence, the one used the best materials and looked more dazzling will certainly share the higher price.
2. Diamond Arrangement
For an iced-out necklace, except the quality of the diamond itself, another way to tell its quality is to look carefully at the diamond arrangement. The stones inlaid in an inferior Cuban chain will be arranged in a random way and diamond distribution is sparse. However, a qualified one will be set close to each other to make sure the stones won’t fall down.
3. The Way it Links/Thickness
Another simple way to tell a qualified Cuban chain is by its thickness. We could tell that the links in the first picture are quite loose while the second is linked in a compacted way. Therefore, we can tell that the second one is much thicker and definitely much heavier than the first one. When buying a Cuban chain, we should also know that, excluding the price, the thicker the chains, the less likely for the color to be faded and it is easy to know that if the jewelry is made of superior materials.
4. Check If the Chain Surface Is Smooth
Superior Cuban chains are made of high-end brass, which is super-friendly to skin and environment. Moreover, they will be plated with many times gold to guarantee a bright and smooth surface and the lasting of a shiny surface. However, inferior jewelry is made of impurity materials, the surface of which is rough and full of burrs.
To conclude, there are mainly four ways to tell a Cuban chain — gold color, diamond arrangement, thickness, and the chain surface.
