Buying a gold necklace or gold bracelet

Where is the best place to shop for solid 9ct gold chain bracelets and necklaces for men and women? Here at Chain Me Up of course. We have a great range of around 150 different styles of chains that are custom made to the length you require.

It’s the perfect way to buy mens gold chains online, as you can customise to suit his tastes and his body shape, ensuring the chain sits in the perfect position. This means your bracelet, necklace or anklet will fit you like a glove.

We specialise in bespoke 9ct gold chains and chain jewellery, like no other store.

You can buy any gold chain in our store, made to length for a rose gold necklace, white gold necklace or a yellow gold necklace. These same chains can all be made to the length you require for a white gold bracelet, rose gold bracelet or a yellow gold bracelet.

Many of our finer gold chains and some of the medium to heavier ones are machine made (They begin with code MM-) They are laser welded which gives a stunning finish and greater strength than the older system of powder soldering, which can leave some links improperly joined and subject to failure.

If you select any of these machine manufactured designs you are given the choice of a single colour from: white, yellow or rose gold. We recommend yellow gold for mens gold chains, whilst women can select the colour that flatters their skin tone and suits their individual style.

We cannot create a machine made chain of varying colours, however, you can choose any length you desire and have a choice of clasps.

Necklaces for men should be around 7mm or thicker, mens solid gold chain bracelets a little wider again. Finer necklace chains may suit men wearing a pendant, but should be avoided otherwise as they may lack masculinity.

When you buy gold chains online here, you’ll have plenty of opportunity to customise every aspect of your unique new necklace or bracelet.

Handmade Chain Jewellery

Our range of handmade gold chains online has an amazing story. Not only are the 9ct solid gold chains assembled by hand, the links are also hand made (and laser welded). This is how we can create the stunning two-tone and tri-tone necklaces and bracelets you can see throughout our online store.

Creating your own unique design is something we are happy to help you with. Any of our gold chains online beginning with the code HM- can be tailor made to suit.

You may like one of the single colour styles shown in our store, but would prefer it to have alternating links of white gold and yellow gold. We can do that!

Alternating patterned links and plain links are popular, especially with the belcher styles we sell. You can have any of these chains with all plain or all patterned (engraved) links if you prefer. It's even possible to have these links and the clasp in the colours of your choice. Please read this article for more information.

Clasps & Padlocks

We also offer a choice of clasps including parrot (lobster), Kartier which is also called a bolt ring or you may prefer to have a heart shaped padlock fitted. The drop down menu on the product page will allow you to select the clasp you wish. The chain photo will change to show the clasp chosen. Pressing the 'refresh' button will change the picture back to the chain photo.

Necklaces & Bracelets - in history:   

Necklaces & Bracelets

It is believed that necklaces have been worn for more than 40,000 years. A necklace is by definition, simply a piece of jewellery that is worn around the neck.

In the very early days of man, necklaces were made from readily available natural materials. Typically this would mean gathering pieces of a vine from a plant or a sinew from an animal hunted for food. This could be fashioned into a simple loop to be worn around the neck. Decorations could be strung on these, frequently small bones, shells or stones that would have a hole made in them to pass over the necklace.

As man learned to manipulate plant and animal fibres, various forms of string were available. Cotton for example has been traced back to around 3000 BC. Other fibres including wool, flax and hemp have also been used to create similar forms of string and rope for thousands of years. All of these materials have featured in jewellery; a flexible string was perfect to create a necklace that could be tied and untied. Adding adornments didn’t require anything more than creating a small hole to pass the string through. Early forms of decoration on a necklace were items gathered from nature. As well as the stones and shells previously mentioned, feathers, coral, flowers, leaves and seed pods were incorporated in the necklaces.

Man later discovered metals such as bronze, copper, silver and gold and the techniques and methods to form them into shapes. These shaped metals could be added to a necklace as adornments or be used for the framework of the necklace, or both. Glass beads were also created and could be coloured and formed into shapes suitable for attaching to a necklace.

Gold and silver smithing are relatively recent occupations and jewellers are highly trained in these areas. Most quality jewellery today, in its various forms, is created from precious metals and precious or semi-precious gemstones.

One of the important skills of a jeweller is to be able to draw gold or silver into a wire. This is done by passing a rod of the metal through a ‘draw plate’. The draw plate is a tapered hole that reduces the diameter of the rod or wire being fed into it. This process is repeated through smaller and smaller draw plates until the desired wire thickness is reached. The ability to draw silver or gold into a wire with a round or square shaped cross-section has made it possible to create the chains from which many necklaces are made today.

A jeweller forms small lengths of wire into loops, which become the links in the chain. These links are made in various shapes and sizes and are interlinked to form the length of a gold necklace chain. Typically these links are soldered closed to give the necklace or bracelet additional strength.

One of the simplest forms of a jewellery chain is the ‘cable’ chain. This is created by joining identical round or slightly oval links end to end. These loops connect to each other at right angles, just like closing your index finger and thumb on each hand through the opposing finger and thumb.

A very common style of necklace is the ‘curb’ or ‘Cuban’ link chain. It is made in exactly the same way as a cable chain, but with a twist. A jeweller holds the join in the link with pliers and holds the opposite side of the link in another pair of pliers. He then twists his hands until they are 90 degrees to each other. This causes the link to deform so that opposite ends of the twist are also at 90 degrees to each other. The jeweller repeats this process on every link in the chain, twisting all the links in the same direction. The result of creating a 90 degree twist in all the links of a chain, is a chain that will lie flat on a table or against your skin.

Figaro style necklaces and bracelets are a variation on the curb chain. Instead of every link being the same length, at set intervals one or more of the links are made longer. You might have repeating patterns of one long link followed by three short links, or one long link and one short link. Other variations are possible, 2 long links and five short links for example; any combination can be created.

There are many styles of chains created from drawn wire and formed into links. The profile of the wire doesn’t just have to be a circle. Belcher chains are made from a half-round profile, box chains and Singapore rope chains are made from a flat strip of metal.

Fancier styles of gold bracelets and necklaces are often made from cast links that can be made into any shape or pattern and joined into a chain.
