We stock high quality base metal loose curb chain, ranging in size from 2.8mm to 6.0mm, and 1 meter in length which is supplied in either silver or gold plated. Gold or Silver can be used to plate base metals such as copper, palladium and brass. The electroplating process is done through the application of a thin layer of pure gold or silver, by depositing it electrolytic ally directly onto the surface of a base metal. Gold can be extremely soft especially in its purest form and so does not stand up to war and tear very well. Electroplating produces a much more resilient and hard wearing metal to work with one that can hold up to everyday wear and tear. All our base metal loose chains have a high quality finish which allow for beautiful jewellery making. Our range of base metal chains is a perfect substitute to precious metal gold and silver chain. Base metal is much less expensive than precious metals and more hard wearing. It allows the jeweller designer to take a creative licence in creating new and innovative styles of both traditional and contemporary jewellery.
