Figaro Chain - Frequently Asked Questions
Where are your chains made?
Our Figaro link chains are made in Italy, which is home to some of the finest goldsmiths in the world and you will notice the quality as soon as you set your eyes on them. We set out to provide the highest quality chains direct to your door without the excess markups seen across the jewellery industry.
Why is it called a Figaro Chain?
The Figaro chain may have originated from Italy and the name of the chain was inspired by the popular Italian opera The Marriage of Figaro. This chain is a flat linked chain similar to the cuban chain but comprises three circular links interlocked followed by a single elongated rectangular link.
Why is this type of chain so popular?
The Figaro are one of the most popular of the chains due to the unique standout look compared to regular cuban or curb chains. This chain was first created in Italy and has since become one of the top choices for both men and women.
How do you wear this style Chain?
A Figaro chain can be worn by itself to uplift any outfit or you can layer your Figaro with other types of chains for a personalised look. We recommend pairing these chains with a Figaro Bracelet or smaller Cuban chain.
Are these chains durable?
Given the pattern of chain links, they are solid and durable chains. There are other more durable chains like the Cuban link chain but generally most people find they don’t have many issues with a Figaro long term.
What material are the Figaro chains made from?
A traditional Figaro is made from Gold or Silver. However, many online jewellers and retailers use cheap materials like stainless steel and brass.
We will never use cheap materials and we offer both 925 sterling silver and 18k gold figaro options. Each Le Nom chain comes with a lifetime guarantee and an official hallmark so you can buy your favorite chain with full confidence. You can read more about our materials on our about us page.
