Are you in the market for a woman’s gold chain? Perhaps as a gift for a special someone or a way to spoil yourself for a special occasion? We’re here to help! We’ve put together this guide to buying gold chains for women in hopes that you’ll be able to find the perfect piece of jewelry no matter what occasion you’re buying it for. Let’s look at some things you should know before we get started.
Karats: Karats is a measurement of the purity of gold within any given piece. Pure gold is 24 karats, but pure gold is too soft to be made into anything that will last for a long time. 18k is a good balance.
Chain Width: All gold chains are a certain width. This refers to the thickness of the chain itself. Smaller chains tend to roll and twist, and if you wear your hair down over them, they may get tangled up with hair.
Gold Color: There are three options for what color gold your chain is going to be. It’s either rose gold, which is a nice pinkish color, white gold (which looks like silver), or yellow gold, which is the normal ‘gold’ color.
Chain Length: This refers to how long the chain will fall below your neckline. Obviously, you want something that’s going to sit right where you want it, so go with a length that’s good for your purposes.
Pendant: Does the chain come with a pendant? Most women’s chains do, and that pendant can be all manner of shapes and sizes, materials and stones included. We will describe the pendant for you if the chain has one.
Clasp: This refers to how the chain closes when you’re wearing it. You wouldn’t want your chain to fall off your neck, so how it closes is particularly important. The length you choose is up to preference, however.
Now that you know what you’re looking for, we can show you the selection of real gold chains and pendants that we’ve chosen for you! We selected these pieces through research and review. These are the best of the best, and you’re sure to find the perfect gift or purchase for yourself! Look at our top and budget picks first, before browsing the rest of the chains on our list! Whichever you choose, you’re going to love it!
