It’s time to choose your new cuban chain and you might be wondering how to pick the best one for your style. Luckily the versatility of this chain makes it hard to make a bad choice however, when choosing your cuban link chain there are some things to consider.
First would be the link size. We offer 6mm, 9mm, 11mm and 13mm cuban links, this is the width of the chain, 6mm & 9mm are the more everyday subtle look while 11mm & 13mm are the statement chains. For a good all rounder link size we recommend the 9mm Cuban Link Chain.
Second is the length of the chain, do you want your necklace to sit high and close to the neckline as more of a choker style? Or do you want a lower hanging necklace? We recommend checking the sizing guide, measuring your neck and following the example guides to see what length would suit your body type.
Now you know the size and length of the cuban chain you’re after, what else should you be looking for? In addition to the fit there are also some other important factors that can help you on your journey to choosing your chain.
Cuban Chain Style
There are a number of different styles of cuban links, the most common are Miami Cuban Links & Square Cuban Links among others link curb link, rounded & prong set. We use a squared off link style where the faces of the links are filed flat as well as the sides being filed flat and also a tight compact link to give more individual links in each length of chain. This gives the links and edgy look while also being eye catching due to the flat surfaces catching the light more often.
Cuban Chains can be made from many different metals, the most common is 316L Stainless steel, 925 sterling silver, 18k gold plated stainless steel and solid gold. The colour choice of silver vs gold will depend on your personal preference and then choosing between the metals will also depend on your budget. 316L stainless steel offers the most benefits in the silver colour due to stainless steel being non tarnish and waterproof where silver will oxidise over time and exposure to water. Gold plating give you the look of gold at a fraction of the cost and solid gold is an investment that will hold it’s value.
Quality & Durability
A good quality cuban chain should be polished well, have tight compact links without a large gap in the middle. Link sizes 8mm and above usually enable the chain to have a box clasp which make the chain extra secure and durable.
Consider the price and your budget. We use 316L stainless steel because it will last a lifetime of daily wear and is among the best value for money when it comes to the affordable price point for cuban chains.
Getting a warranty on your purchase will give you extra peace of mind with your new cuban chain. We give a lifetime warranty on all purchases.
