What types of chains can you find with us?
Our subtle chains are elegant because of the subtle links. There are different types of necklaces available, and it's important to know which one is right for you.
Silver chain: 925 sterling silver
A silver necklace is a stylish and timeless accessory. Our silver necklaces are made of 925 sterling silver, an alloy of silver and other metals known for its shine, durability and softness. A 925 sterling silver necklace is a great choice if you're looking for a budget-friendly option that still looks elegant.
Gold chains: Gold filled 14kt & 14K gold
Gold chains are a popular choice among jewelry lovers and are a real investment. Gold filled 14kt chains are made of a thin layer of gold welded onto a base of another metal. This results in a chain that looks like solid gold, but costs a fraction of the price. 14 karat gold chains are made of 14 parts gold and 10 parts other metals, offering an excellent balance of durability and affordability. Whether you're looking for a sophisticated finishing touch to your outfit or a worthwhile investment, a gold chain is an excellent choice.

Maintenance for chains
A necklace is an important investment in your jewelry collection, so it is very important to maintain it correctly. Below we discuss how you can keep your sterling silver, gold filled 14kt and 14 karat gold chains in top shape.
Maintenance of a silver chain
A silver chain requires regular maintenance to keep it looking shiny and new. It is advisable to clean your silver necklace regularly with a soft cloth and not to wear it while showering, swimming or sleeping. Store your silver necklace separately from other jewelry and avoid contact with products that contain chlorine, acid or other chemicals.
Maintenance of a gold filled 14 kt chain
Gold filled 14kt chains require little maintenance, but it is important to protect them from damage and fading. Store your gold filled 14 kt chain separately from other jewelry and avoid contact with products that contain chlorine, acid or other chemicals. Clean your gold filled 14kt chain with a soft cloth and store it in a dry, dark place.
Maintenance of a 14 carat gold chain
A 14 carat gold chain is a valuable investment and therefore requires regular maintenance. It is recommended to clean your chain regularly with a soft cloth. Store your necklace separately from other jewelry and avoid contact with products that contain chlorine, acid or other chemicals.
What link do our chains have?
We could fill a whole page about the different links used for jewelry. There are many options to choose from, but there are only a few links that are very popular and that you see often.
In our webshop you will find chains with gourmet links, also known as Cuban links. This chain is somewhat similar to the basic link chain, but because gourmet links are turned and ground, they lie flat on the skin. This makes the necklace more beautiful and you enjoy a more luxurious look.
