The name of this chain, Figaro, implies music. And the design of this 18-inch chain--three small square links alternating with one large oval link--certainly dances in the light, as if to a song. Cuts on the top, bottom, and corners of the links create endless angles that reflect light and give the chain its concave shape. The solid 14k gold ensures the chains strength and durability: pure gold is too malleable for jewelry and so is mixed with alloys of silver, copper, and zinc. The clasp is a lobster claw, which is easy to maneuver but also secure.

The purity of gold is measured in karats. Pure gold measures 24 karats but is too soft in this state to be used effectively in jewelry. So it is alloyed with other metals--silver, copper, nickel, and zinc--to increase its strength and durability. Common measurements once the alloy is added are 18 karat (75% gold), 14 karat (58%), and 10 karat (47.7%). In the United States, the legal karat limit for the metal to still be considered gold is 10 karats. A higher karat measurement in gold content indicates a greater value of the jewelry piece. Gold jewelry should always be stamped with the karat mark, either 18k, 750 (European marking for 18k), 14k, 585 (European marking for 14k), or 10k. In addition, to assure its quality, the piece should be stamped with the manufacturer's trademark or country of origin.
The color of gold may vary based off of the type of metal alloy included and the percentage of the metal alloy used. Most commonly, gold is available in yellow, white, and rose coloring.
Yellow gold is the most common color and is usually alloyed with silver and copper. Yellow and white gold are similar in strength and malleability, making them perfect for jewelry that is worn daily.
White gold is alloyed with nickel, copper, and zinc--and while it looks similar to platinum, it has vastly different properties.
Rose-colored gold is alloyed with copper and is often used to accent white or yellow gold. The saturation of color varies from piece to piece and according to gold content.
Caring For Your Gold Jewelry
To keep gold shining and scratch-free, avoid contact with chlorine and other harsh chemicals. Do not wear jewelry during rough work and be sure to store it in a fabric-lined jewelry box or pouch. To clean gold jewelry, use warm water, a mild soap, and a soft bristled brush, if needed.
Metallic chains first received their popularity as a jewelry accessory during the ancient Roman times, when woman wore gold chains as necklaces. Since this time, the world of chain jewelry has advanced, becoming a popular accessory, casual or formal, for men and woman of all ages.
Chains are made from the construction of links that range in various shapes and sizes. This variety creates unique patterns that make each chain style distinct. This classic jewelry icon is available in a wide range of styles and thicknesses. Chains are available at all price points and are made out of an array of precious metal types.
Using the curb chain style to form flattened links, the Figaro chain does not have one uniformed size link. Instead, it usually has a pattern of two to three shorter links alternating with a longer link that continues throughout the entire length of the chain. The name is derived from the Italian opera The Marriage of Figaro, which was popular at the time this chain became a stylish accessory.
