Jewelry trends come and jewelry trends go, but a beautiful gold chain, crafted from the finest 14K gold, will stay classic and in style forever.

At, we carry an excellent selection of cable chains and round wheat chains, in 14K yellow or white solid gold, designed to be both strong enough to hold a gold cross, but striking enough in their own right to be worn alone.

Of course, we aren’t the only jewelers to believe in the longevity, beauty and style of a classic gold chain. Gold chains actually date back to at least 2500 BC, when ancient Egyptians with an eye for style and a yearning for beautiful adornment began threading gold and silver together. Back then, the chains they created served a dual purpose: aside from decoration, they were also worn for good luck and to scare away evil spirits. This evolved over time to gold chains being worn to represent everything from strength, to wealth, and even eternal love. In short, a lot of meaning was attached to the simple gold chain.

Moving on in history to 300 BC, and the stylish set in ancient Greece could be seen adorning themselves with lustrous gold chains, with pendants and gemstones added to them for further lavish effect. Gold was bountiful in Greece at that time, but only the very rich could afford it.

Fast forward to today and we find that while still extremely valuable and highly valued, gold chains are far more affordable, and worn by far more people for far more reasons. Whether you choose to wear a gold chain as fashion and simple adornment, as a display of status and to represent success, or as a vessel to display your most treasured gold cross, a well-made 14K version can last a lifetime and be passed down from generation to generation.

At Gold Crosses, we carry an extensive selection of 14K yellow or white solid gold cable as well as 18K yellow gold chains and round wheat chains, in a broad variety of widths and lengths, complete with strong by stylish lobster clasps. In terms of chains used specifically to match a Gold Crosses cross, we recommend strong cable (link) chains, with widths ranging from 1.1 millimeters up to 4 millimeters, and lengths varying from 16 inches up to 24 inches. Looking for something more delicate? Our selection of round wheat chains complement our daintier crosses and pendants perfectly, and are also available in a range of widths and lengths.
