  1. Gold Plated Chains & Necklaces on Sterling Silver

    Gold Plated Chains & Necklaces on Sterling Silver

    Whilst fashion trends in jewellery come and go, the taste for Gold in jewellery continues to stand firm in its different incarnations, whether rings, bracelets, chains, necklaces and more. In this blog post we’re going to explore this trend of Gold as used as a plating on Sterling Silver Chains and the evolving mindset towards Gold fashioned onto Sterling Silver Chains to create pieces that are just as spectacular as solid Gold Chains.

    Natural attraction to Gold

    Little explanation is required to know that Gold itself has been historically been valued highly by cultures all across the world over thousands of years in jewellery- whether in religious or cultural practices or as a reflection of status, such as Royalty. In fact many ancient cultures closely associate Gold with the Sun, and Royalty, with the Sun being the King and life giver on Earth and solar system, it’s not wonder Gold is almost engrained in mind to be valued quite highly.

    Sourced from deep beneath the earth, this precious metal has undoubtedly been one of the highest valued materials on the planet and whilst it may be difficult to put into words a single reason for the attraction to this naturally bright yellow metal, one thing is for sure- when it’s crafted into jewellery it’s charm surely magnifies tenfold.

    Gold Chains themselves can be vibrant whatever the purity of Gold from which it has been crafted- whether 24ct, 22ct, 18ct, 14ct or 9ct since each emanate a different shade of Yellow suitable to our own tastes. The only difference however between each level of these purities are the relative cost.  9ct Gold being less expensive and 24ct being higher owing to the purity and concentration of gold content increasing at each increment.

    Since the price of Gold being assessed on its weight, and Gold now being at all time high (at least 5-6 times more than 20 years ago) when you’re looking to accessories with Gold Chains and Necklaces, an evolving trend has emerged that maintains the luxury of the Gold appearance, yet won’t cost the earth- Gold Plated Chains on Sterling Silver.

    So, what are Gold Plated Chains on Sterling Silver?

    What is a Curb Chain?

    All you need to know about the Curb style of Chain Link and all its varieties...

    Unlike newer chains where names are given and evolve, classic styles of chain link have names that have long stuck around for decades and are instantly familiar, and the Curb Chain is a part of the classic chain styles group. Where Fashion trends are historic and standards the basis for much jewellery in Italy and France, the curb is known as Grumetta and a Gourmette Chain respectively.

    How is a curb chain made?
    Like most of the classic styles of Chain Link, which have originated hundreds of years before any of the state of the art technology existed, the Curb chain links were crafted from a round wire that was cut to size and then twisted to create a link shape with distinctive grooves. These grooves allow another curb link of the same width, length and depth to sit snuggly in this little pocket and the pairing process is then repeated with until the right length was produced. From this one base shape, creativity and evolving technology has resulted in several varieties of this Curb Chain Link style to meet the latest fashion trends, but at the heart of the Curb Chain, lies that distinct link shape with two grooves on each side, and the formation of one link paired with another.
