If you would like to see any of our chains before purchasing, please come see us at a show! If there is a specific chain you want to see, make sure to email us ahead of time so we can bring it. We can only bring a selection of our most popular chains to shows.You can order increments as small as 10 feet of all chains. We no longer offer sample lengths.
Care InstructionsLike any fashion
jewelry, 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. This is not a flaw, it's just a difference in material.
Composition Quality and Safety
Our chains are made of
high-quality brass or steel-- they will be labelled on the individual
product pages accordingly. The base metal and finishes are free of
lead, nickel, cadmium, and other irritating components, meaning the chains and
findings are hypoallergenic. We now carry solid sterling silver chain from Italy! We do not carry gold-filled or solid gold 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.
Spools of chain may contain one or more joins. Chains may arrive joined from the factory, and the ends will be connected with wire. The wire is attached while the chain is still raw, so unfortunately wire joins from the factory are the same finish as the rest of the chain and may not be obvious. Please check your chains when you are cutting to avoid having a join in your design.
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(s). If this is ever an issue, please let us know and we are happy to replace or only ship continuous spools to you.
Stock Finishes and Special FinishesWe
offer a large variety of colored metal finishes for all of our chains
and findings. The colors we carry for a particular chain vary based on
popularity and customer demand. If a chain is not listed in a particular
finish, you can always special order it and we will have it plated for
We have the option of plating any of our chains and findings in a higher quality version. The electroplating uses precious metals and is plated for a longer duration of time, resulting in a thicker coating. It is then electrocoated 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.
