| Chain Types | Choosing
chain or bracelet adds style to anything she wears. Chains and
bracelets go with everything. A fine platinum chain will add just a
touch of shine. Consider giving her a 18-inch, platinum chain to add
an element of visual interest to her wardrobe. When selecting a chain
or pendant, consider that the length will determine where it will lie
on her chest. Remember that longer lengths accentuate the bust while
shorter lengths feature the beautiful lines of her neck. Bracelets
are usually worn on occasions when she isn't working with her hands.
Even when not working, a bracelet's proximity to the hands causes it
to get bumped and banged, so it must be very durable. Jewelry
designers take this into account, so you can be sure the bracelet you
choose will last. Bracelets are available in different lengths. So
before you purchase, be sure to measure one of her other bracelets to
be sure she doesn't need a special length. You'll find a variety of
chain designs, like the traditional snake or wheat chain, in a
variety of metals like platinum and platinum & 18k gold.
Made Chains Bracelets
& bracelets machine made or casted?
Cast jewelry is the most common type because casting is least
expensive and still allows a variety of design and texture. Cast
items are more porous and less durable than die-struck jewelry.
Machine made refers to mechanically created jewelry. Our chains &
bracelets are machine made and are impoted from Italy.
usually alloyed with other metals- ruthenium or iridium -at 95 parts
to 100. We offer platinum chains & bracelets in platinum
ruthenium and platinum irridium alloy. We prefer platinum iridium
alloy because iridium is harder and expensive than ruthenium. It is
also important in the automated manufacture of products such as
chains because softer alloys place less wear on the forming
machinery. Components such as spring catches,however, have to be made
from harder alloys that can withstand the stresses placed upon them
in use. View
are the marks inside my platinum jewelry? You're familiar with
the gold standard, where 24k = 100%. The platinum standard is based
on parts per thousand, where 1000 parts = 100%. All platinum alloys
are derived from this standard. The two most common platinum alloys
