History of Figaro Chains:

Chains are believed to have been discovered at least back to 2500 BC, and we can give credits to Ancient Egyptians for being so brilliant in threading links together and creating chains. Later on, chains with gemstones are seen worn by the upper class, and it became a standard piece of jewelry. Some wear chains with lavish pendants often illustrated by biblical emblems or representations. As time passed, technology progressed to making chains, and nowadays, chains are jewelry staples worn by both men and women of any age.

One of the many types of chain is the very well known Figaro chain, which may look very similar to a curb or cable chain. This chain is a simple and elongated one inserted in a pattern. Italians make Figaro chains, and up until now, Italy made the finest Figaro chains. This chain is named after the classical operas “The Barber of Seville and the Marriage of Figaro.” Men’s Figaro gold chain is the most popular style of chain for men. The history of wearing Figaro chains brought a meaningful contribution to the fashion statement of today’s era.

Types of Figaro Chain:

When talking about chains, there are many different types and styles, and the Figaro chain is just one. Figaro chains are cable chains with flattened links that are not uniform in size because they usually come in 2-3 shorter links separated by a longer one. This chain is also believed to be a modified version of the curb chain, where the interlocking flat links vary in size. There are no specific types of Figaro chains. Still, this chain varies according to length, width, size, and materials used - if it is a silver Figaro chain, gold Figaro chain or Figaro white gold chain or any other materials used to create this chain, and the thickness of the chain. There is one particular type of Figaro chain called Figarope, which is similar to the Figaro chain but with twisted links that create a woven rope effect.

How to Choose the Perfect Figaro Chain?

Before buying a Figaro chain, there are several important factors to consider. Here are some tips on how to choose the perfect Figaro chain for you:

  1. If you are searching for gold plated or hollow Figaro chains, make sure to weigh the pros and cons of having a plated or hollow chain to ensure your chain's durability.
  2. Picking the perfect chain length is essential. Pick the length not just because it's your choice but the suitability for your neck and even on your daily wear. It is also necessary to decide how thick the chain should be.
  3. Inspect the clasp or connector. Ensure your chain has a clasp or connector that closes it well and is not easy to break. Lobster clasp is one of the best and excellent choices because it is a solid clasp and does not open and is not broken easily if you happen to pull your chain harder.
  4. Checking if your Figaro chain is smooth is necessary. You might probably think that this is not a big deal, but if you are going to wear a rough chain, it may irritate you. To check if the chain is smooth, you can run your fingers over the chain and make sure there are no jagged or snaggy pieces that could rub your skin.
