Twenty-four carat (24k) gold is the purest form of the metal. Italian gold jewellery is world renowned for its fine craftsmanship. Italian goldsmiths often use 24k gold to make striking rope chains admired for their colour, shine and weight.

French Rope

The French rope chain is a very durable 24k Italian gold chain. The French rope consists of two thick strands woven together to create the appearance of a spiral. This chain can be worn alone or with a pendant.

Cable Link

The cable link rope chain is often worn with a pendant or charm. The cable link consists of interlocking equal-sized connecting rings.

Curb Link

The curb link can also be made from 24k Italian gold. The curb link rope chain consists of interlocking flat ovals. Diamonds or other jewels can be set between the links for a more opulent look.

Singapore Rope

The Singapore rope chain consists of sections of flat diamond-cut interlocking loops. This gives the appearance of a twisted herringbone chain. The Singapore rope chain is often used with pendants and charms.
