Cuban chains are winning popularity these days and so many people are confused about how to tell fake and real ones. Today, we are gonna talk about it. Any ideas and questions, don’t forget to comment below or email us to email@example.com.
Firstly, the Karat of the chains.
The Karat is about the purity of the gold. 14-Karat gold contains 14 parts pure gold and 10 parts additional durable metals such as copper, zinc, etc. 18-karat gold, in contrast, has 6 parts other metal for every 18 parts gold.
As you can see, a 18K gold has higher purity, at 75% gold content while 14K is 58.3% gold. Normally speaking, the higher purity, the deeper color it maybe. At Aporro, we are producing 14K gold chains, which is brighter and much better match for other jewelry and outfits.
Secondly, the Finish of the links.
For the same Karat gold chains, if it has a favorable finish, the surface of it would be more shining and smooth.
Thirdly, the Weight of the chains.
The weight of a chain usually lies in the core metal of it. For sure, the grams varies in the size.
At Aporro, the core metal of Cuban chains is made of brass which is of good hardness with proper weight. The grams are appropriate for hanging under your neck and match with other necklaces. But those made of alloy are much lighter and feel nothing which is a bad experience.
Fourthly, the thickness of the chains.
The thicker the chains, the less likely to be fade and tarnish. At Aporro, our chains are dipped 4 times in 14K gold plating. If you wear it and store it properly, it could stay as bright as when you first take it home for 1-2 years.
Fifthly, the links of the chains.
Better ones are linked closely and tightly with each other, while those inferior are clearly to be seen with breaks, which can be easier to break or fall off.
Last but not least, we’d like to share with you the newly designed package of Aporro. You know your treasuring jewelry is protected by 4 layers, a plastic wrap, a Ziplock bag, a dust bag and Aporro branded storage box which is lined with tarnish-proof fabric plush with a little drawer for you to store the jewelry when you take it off.
Out of that, there are bubble wrap and box package in the outermost, so never worry about that there would be any scratches. We will take care of every piece of the jewelry considerably.
