Silver Chain

Choosing A 925 Sterling Silver Chain

Request For Your Size, No Rhodium Or Gold Plating Is Used For These Chains

A silver chain will need to be fairly strong, a flimsy light weight sterling silver chain would break easily. If you are wearing your 925 sterling silver chain with a pendant, the breaking of the chain could mean that the pendant drops off and gets lost. Many buyers are willing to pay substantial amounts for good quality silver pendants, they however seem reluctant to pay for a good quality silver chain to wear the pendant on. The best way to get over this problem is to budget for your silver chain and silver pendant at the same time. You would not like to wear a sturdy and imposing silver pendant on a thin light weight silver chain. At the same time, a small tiny pendant would get lost if worn on a thick and heavy sterling silver chain. We have kept these issues in mind and put together a collection of sterling silver chains that would be suitable for most buyers. We provide you with options to select the length of your 925 silver chain. A 16 inch silver chain or 18 inch sterling silver chain would be suitable for ladies. Men often prefer shorter silver chains if the pendant and chain is to be worn with a high collar shirt. If you are looking for a long men's sterling silver chain, choose a length of 24 inches to 30 inches.

Suggestions For Your Sterling Silver Chain
It will be a good idea to understand the features and issues involved when choosing a silver chain. If you are thinking of a silver chain and pendant, make sure that the sterling silver chain does not detract from the attractiveness of the silver pendant. The sterling silver chain in many cases, can actually enhance the beauty and meaning of your silver pendant. Don't rush to find the cheapest silver chain available as, your satisfaction could be short lived. A cheap chain would also be light and delicate, it might look great but would not last long. Few jewellers repair silver chains, so you will need to make the right choice the first time. Some silver chain designs might look gorgeous but, could require some extra caring and looking after. Make sure that you are prepared to take those extra precuations before purchasing such 925 sterling silver chains. Below are some vital issues that, will need to be considered when choosing a silver chain.

Men's or lady's chains: This will be the starting point in your search for a silver chain. A men's silver chain would normally be longer and heavier as compared to a lady's sterling silver chain. The length of chains might also differ depending on whether it is a lady's or men's 925 silver chain. Men do not take too much care of their jewellery, this means that the men's silver chain will need to be more stronger and durable. We will make more references to these issues in the paragraphs below.

Length of the chain: The basic construction and thickness of a silver chain will influence the 'ideal' or 'suitable' length for the chain. For example, a thin silver chain would not be suitable for long lengths as it could break easily. Silver chains that are flat and thin (low thickness) can get permanently bent if they are turned in sharp angles. The length of the chain would also be dependent on whom it is meant for. Men prefer 24 inch to 30 inch silver chains. This is probaby because they do not care much about the pendant (if worn with the chain) not being visible. It is however not uncommon to find men's silver chains with a length of 18 inches to 20 inches. Ladies silver chains would normally be in the range of 16 inches to 20 inches. At Kaisilver we allow you to choose the length of your sterling silver chain, the chain is then custom cut and prepared as per your specifications.

Chain weight: Like all other jewellery, it is necessary for a silver chain to have a weight that is porportional to the dimensions of the chain. The dimensions of a sterling silver chain would include the length and thickness of the chain. You therefore cannot assess the ideal weight of a silver chain by the length alone. An 18 inch silver chain could have a weight of 10 grams or even 20 grams. A broad chain design with low weight would mean that, the silver chain is weak and can easily break. In general it could be said that, a men's sterling silver chain would weigh more than a lady's silver chain. Assess the suitable weight for your silver chain based on appearance and design and also long term durability. Please note that the 2 gram and 3 gram chains peddled by the television shopping channels, big department stores, jewelry catalogs etc are pure junk. These junk chains knot up easily and become almost impossible to untangle.

Design selection: As far as the appearance of a silver chain is concerned, most of us would have our own perception regarding what is a good design for a sterling silver chain. However, it is necessary to know a few things before rushing to make a decision. A delicate and dainty design might look gorgeous, but such a 925 silver chain might not be very strong. You will need to keep the design concept of the pendant in mind when choosing the design for your sterling silver chain. A pendant with large dimensions would need a fairly heavy silver chain. Certain silver chain designs are not suitable for very long chains, such chains can leave permanent bend marks (on the chain) when they get a bit twisted. A silver chain with a simple, sleek and smooth finish will look best if made in shorter lengths like 16 inches to 18 inches. You do not have to be very extravagant when choosing your silver chain, at the time do not rush for the cheapest chain.

Sturdy clasp: The clasp for your silver chain allows the chain to be opened up and closed again. Lady's sterling silver chains are normally not long enough to be worn and taken off from around the head. The clasp will therefore be used often, this means that it has to be durable and strong. We have seen silver chains with very small clasps, some of these actually stick in the nails (when being opened and closed) and cause injury!!!. Bad clasps can also cause your chain to open up when you least expect them to. It is then easy for your silver chain to slide off your neck and drop down. The clasp on a chain is an important part of the chain, give it the importance it deserves.

Plating: We have decided to discuss this aspect of a silver chain separately. Many buyers do not understand the implications of plating a sterling silver chain and rush to make a purchase. All sterling silver jewellery including a silver chain will show signs of tarnish. A tarnished silver chain will look a very pale cream color to start with, the tarnish will continue to develop if the sterling silver chain is not cleaned. Severe tarnish could give a very dark brown to blackish color to the 925 silver chain. Occassionally wiping your silver chain with a soft moist cloth would, reduce or eliminate visible tarnish from forming on the sterling silver chain. Jewellers have tried several treatments to reduce or eliminate the formation of tarnish on silver jewellery. One such method is to plate the silver chain with rhodium, gold or even platinum. Such plated silver chains will look gorgeous when new, the plating however wears off with time. Your chain will then end up looking patchy and terrible. For this reason, choose an unplated silver chain, clean it occassionally with a moist cloth and it should keep looking good.

Jewellers do not give much attention to silver chains and none would care to provide such detailed notes. As a buyer, it will be necessary for you to understand all the issues involved when selecting a silver chain. Read the above information and keep in mind that you have a right to get a good quality silver chain, even if it does not give too much of a profit margin to the seller.

Some Thoughts And Ideas For Your Sterling Silver Chain
A sterling silver chain could be worn just as a chain or with a pendant. Men's silver cross pendants are often worn with a very long silver chain, the pendant cannot be seen from outside as it is well within the shirt. It is not uncommon to see ladies wearing small pendants that almost hug to the neck, this requires a short sterling silver chain. We have not come across silver chains breaking because of the weight of the pendant, but bad silver chains do break. Bad desigh or craftsmanship can cause your sterling silver chain to snap and break. Thin, light weight silver chains have a similar problem of breaking.

Plain silver chains with no diamonds or gemstones, can be wiped clean but do not rub them vigourously. To clean your silver chain, take a bowl of cool (room temperature would be fine) water, add a very little mild detergent to the water. Now soak the chain in the water for 2-3 minutes, wipe the chain gently with a soft moist cloth. Do not press the moist cloth too firmly on the chain, this could cause the chain to snap. If your 925 sterling silver chain has an intricate design, ensure that it is not damaged in the cleaning process. The fibers or threads in the cloth could stick in sharp or pointed edges and if pulled, could ruin the design.

If your silver pendant has an antique design, a slight tarnish on the silver chain would enhance the classic, antique look of the pendant. Be careful when wearing or storing broad silver chains that are hollow inside. Physical impact can dent or flatten them, it might often not be possible to repair such damaged sterling silver chains. A good silver chain cannot be cheap and a cheap silver chain cannot be good. Work with your jeweller before finalizing on which sterling silver chain to buy.
