Gold jewelry pieces have always been a fixture on men’s bodies as far back as ancient and medieval times. Gold jewelry comes in various forms; bracelets, rings, earrings, pendants, and neck chains. In this context, we’ll discuss gold-plated chains that have taken mainstream spots in men’s fashion and can access different outfits. These are fashion items you can’t afford to miss out on if you’re a fan of gold jewelry.

So what are these gold-plated chains to look out for?

Cuban Chain

The Cuban chain is one of the most popular neck chains for men. This chain link is manufactured through an interlinked network of oval-shaped, twisted links. It’s similar to the curb chain, only rounder. This chain is available in different metals, but its gold-plated version is a sight for sore eyes. Its bright and shiny look will make you the cynosure of all eyes, and while you can wear it to any occasion, it’s best suited for parties and casual events. It's a statement piece that will draw attention to your outfit. The 18K Gold Plated Stainless Steel Cuban Chain with CZ Double Tab Box Clasp is a perfect example of the Cuban chain.

Rope Chain

This jewelry piece is a unique-looking chain. It’s aptly named because it looks like a twisted rope. The rope chain consists of many small links that are twisted in a couple or trio. The rope chain has varieties - there’s the French rope chain, thick and slim rope chains, and so on. The intricacy of this chain's design is a testament to its craftsmanship. One of the best rope chains to rock is the Gold Stainless Steel  3.5mm French Rope Chain. Based on the design alone, it’s one of the best neck chains for men.

Figaro Chain

Figaro chains are known and loved for one particular trait - their simplicity. It consists of a lengthy oval-shaped link coupled with three round links that continue throughout the chain's entire body. The overall effect of this simple design is a subtle elegance that's further magnified by the flamboyance of gold. Pieces like the Gold Stainless Steel Speckled Pattern Figaro Chain can be worn with any outfit.

Franco Chain

Just as you know already, some jewelry pieces bear a close resemblance to another. The Franco chain looks very similar to the Cuban chain and curb chain. It's very easy to mistake one for the other. Not to the trained eye though. The giveaway is that the Franco chain has four v-shaped links instead of a single link in the other two chains, as you can see in the Gold Stainless Steel Franco Link Chain. This isn’t common knowledge, but you can fashion a Franco chain from 2-4 curb chains.

Box Chain

Just as the name suggests, the design of this chain is very easy to identify. It consists of several squared links, which are very similar to small boxes. This chain doesn’t just have a great visual appeal like the Gold Stainless Steel Bold Box Chain; it's also very functional because you can wear it with a pendant and with any outfit.
