However, maybe you should consider a 14k gold Figaro chain; they bring a uniqueness that the others don’t. But what is a Figaro link chain? Here is a brief guide to this interesting chain and why you should consider getting one.
What’s a Figaro Chain?
The Figaro Chain is a distinct link chain that connects two or three circular links to one elongated ovular link. The chain originally hails from Italy.
Supposedly it gained its namesake from Italian opera; it came from a character named Figaro from a series of operas written by Italian playwright Gioachino Rossini in the 19th century.
At the time, the Italian nobles (mostly men) would all wear chains like it to view the operas that Figaro was in, such as The Barber of Seville and The Marriage of Figaro. Even today, Italian makers have some of the highest quality men’s Figaro chains.
Why Should I Have a Figaro Chain?
The Figaro link chain is unique compared to the other necklace chain styles, and you should consider getting one because of these reasons:
Unlike some other chains, Fiagros are durable and can resist certain chain yanks, and can hold up to the test of time. Chances are that your Figaro can ultimately be the same one worn by your children and grandchildren.
They shouldn’t tarnish or turn another color, especially if you decide to buy a gold Figaro chain.
Great for All Genders
If you want to pass this chain down to your daughter, you can do that as well. Figaros are not gender-specific, even though they started as accessories for men when they were first created.
Now, everyone can wear them and look good.
Easy to Fix the Links
Unlike certain chains such as ropes and snakes, Figaro chains are much easier to fix if they are yanked and broken. However, it’s not enough to simply remove the link when it’s broken.
You actually have to take it to be replaced and fixed by a jeweler. Otherwise, you run the risk of messing up the unique design. So you will have to take it to someone who can find it and fix it or to the jeweler you bought it from.
