JEWELRY EDUCATION > GLOSSARY > Link Chain
Link Chain comes in wide variety of styles. One of the most popular is the anchor chain, also called the Gucci chain. Another popular link chain is the figaro, which usually has an alternating pattern of one large and three small links. Link chains also come in wide variety of sizes- from the small, basic chain, termed cable, to striking jumbo necklaces. Normally the thicker the link the stronger it is, provided it is solid and well soldered. A link chain that has been twisted about 85 degrees and then flattened is often called a curb link.
