Let’s start with the name and why this chain is known as a “Franco Chain.” You may have encountered the word Franco Chain before when looking for gold chain link necklaces, but you may not have known what it meant. The name “Franco” comes from Italy, and it is called after the Italian jewelry designer who created this chain-link pattern. Cuban Chains were the inspiration for Franco Chains. The signature of a well-wrought Franco Chain accentuates the traditional curb shape, giving it a more solid appearance. The fundamental distinction between Franco Chains and Cuban Links is that Franco Chains have four additional sides and are braided into a unique “V” design. So, how exactly is a Franco Chain made? Franco chains create their trademark “V” form by flattening two to four curb necklaces and then connecting the curbed chains together.
Are Franco Chains Durable?
It’s fashionable to wear both delicate and bold gold link chains at the same time. As a result, strength and design are critical considerations to ensure that the layered chains do not tangle or get knotted. Franco Chains are popular because they are easy to care for and do not tangle owing to their distinctive “V” shape braid pattern. This results in an elaborate and strong pattern that runs the length of the chain. Franco chains are sturdy and unlikely to kink because to their square shape, which remains smooth and homogeneous.
