What is the Cuban chain, and how to choose a suitable Cuban chain?

Cuban Link Chain

Strictly speaking, the Cuban chain is a round or oval chain ring. A smooth bottom can be placed flat on the wrist, neck, and chest as a unit of the chain.

So a proper Cuba chain would look like this

When and where the Cuban chain originated is no longer documented. But the Cuban chain rose to prominence in the late 1970s and 1980s with the Mariel smuggling incident, which saw large numbers of Cuban stowaways arrive in the United States in Miami, forming the most significant Cuban community. Influenced by the hip-hop culture represented by DJs at that time, the Cuban chain also emerged. So the Cuban chain is also called the Miami chain or the Miami Cuban chain. But in the jewelry market, the Cuba chain is a kind of jewelry that originated in the United States.

Later, with the development of science and technology, jewelry manufacturing technology, and rich materials for jewelry, the Cuban chain gradually evolved into various shapes, such as diamond-shaped Cuban chain and pig nose Cuban chain. But the primary core linking method – the chain loop method, has not changed significantly. The chain loop method is not only the core of the Cuban chain but also the most vital link in many jewelry designs.

Cuba chain material can be more selective, standard alloy, titanium steel, stainless steel, environmental protection copper, rose gold/silver, or pure gold. 

Inlaid materials are artificial rhinestones, natural zircon, moissanite, raw gems, and diamonds. 

Treatment methods are electroplating, water plating, drop oil, gold plating, and inlaid gold.

There are various shapes, such as diamonds, crescents, pig noses, figure eights, thorns, or a combination. Other popular elements, such as butterflies, lion heads, and other decorations, can also be used.

How to choose the proper Cuban chain for yourself?

Own Budget: From our perspective as contractors, hip-hop accessories are moving up to the high end. For example, the Cuban chain made of stainless steel, titanium steel, and alloy materials seven or eight years ago has fewer and fewer customer orders. Except for some classic entry models, the rest are mid – to high-end.

If the budget is not too big, you can choose stainless steel plated Cuban chains. Classic shape, more versatile. Like this:

Or the combination of alloy and rhinestone, but in the simple sense, respect does not have too high a requirement. And it is best to find regular brands or businesses to buy; after all, if the alloy, if the quality is not up to standard, in addition to the texture is not suitable, there may be harmful metal.

Suppose the budget is enough for the consumers who are more in pursuit of texture. In that case, they can choose the production process of environmentally friendly copper + natural Hao stone + K gold plating, the most commonly used medium and high-end Cuban chain on the market.

If you have enough money, you can Slay all the people with custom-made gold or a combination of gold and gems.

Also, the longer the Cuban chain, the better, nor the thicker, the better. Now the chain width is generally about 12~20mm; as far as the average person is concerned, the width of 14~18mm is enough.

As for the length, you can refer to this rendering (actually with the individual’s fat, thin and tall slightly different). According to the current domestic sales situation in China, the width of 15mm, and the length of 20~24 inch is the most popular.
