Care Instructions

Like any fashion jewelry, products made with our chain should be treated carefully. Please avoid getting the chain wet, or having it come in to contact with chemicals. Soaps, perfumes, salt water, etc. can all affect the finish of the chain. We do not recommend wearing our chain in the shower, while swimming, or while exercising. The chain is plated, not solid, so it cannot withstand the same sort of wear that a solid gold wedding band can, for example.

Quality and Safety

Our chains are made of high-quality brass or steel-- they will be labelled on the individual product pages accordingly. As the base metal and finishes are free of lead, nickel, cadmium, and other irritating components, the chains and findings are hypoallergenic. We do not carry gold-filled or solid sterling silver chains.

Connected Chain and Continuous Spools

If you order multiple spools of one chain, we will send them together on one spool. For example, ordering 4 x 25ft spools will result in 1 spool of 100ft. If you need your spools separate, please let us know in the "comments" section and we are happy to send separate spools.

Chains may have joins from the factory production, meaning the ends will be connected with wire. The wire is attached before plating, so wire joins from the factory are the same color as the rest of the chain and may not be obvious at a glance. Please check your chains when you are cutting to avoid joins.

When we join chain here at the office to make up a longer spool, we mark the spot conspicuously with colored wire. We also include extra feet of chain with a note to let you know about the join. Spools will not contain more than 1-2 joins, we just want to let you know so you are not surprised if you see one!

Stock Finishes and Special Finishes

We offer the largest variety of colored metal finishes for all our chains and findings. The colors we carry for a particular chain vary based on popularity and customer demand. Any chain or finding is available in all the colors, just email us and we will get it for you!

We can plate any of our chains and findings in a more expensive, high-quality plating. The electroplating uses precious metals and is plated for a longer duration of time, resulting in a thicker coating (40 mils). It is then coated in clear acrylic sealant, guaranteeing that the color will not tarnish or wear off. These chains are department store quality and used by some of our high-end designers. Please contact us for a quote on a specific chain.
