Like most of the classic styles of Chain Link, which have originated hundreds of years before any of the state of the art technology existed, the Curb chain links were crafted from a round wire that was cut to size and then twisted to create a link shape with distinctive grooves. These grooves allow another curb link of the same width, length and depth to sit snuggly in this little pocket and the pairing process is then repeated with until the right length was produced. From this one base shape, creativity and evolving technology has resulted in several varieties of this Curb Chain Link style to meet the latest fashion trends, but at the heart of the Curb Chain, lies that distinct link shape with two grooves on each side, and the formation of one link paired with another.
Carat can refer to the quality or purity of gold – pure gold ie a metal that is 100% gold and nothing else but gold, is know or pure gold or 24-carat gold. So for example with a ring which is 18ct ie 18/24s gold or put another way, 18 divided by 24 is 0.750 or 3/4. You may see jewellery marked 0.750 which is a somewhat modern way of writing 18ct as we say in the UK and 18k as they say in the rest of the world. The colour of pure gold is yellow. However, if gold is mixed with other metals it can become a silvery colour, known as white gold, or pinky and is then known as rose gold.
