What is a Cuban Link Chain?
The Cuban link chain features a traditional design similar to that of a rope and is made up of single links arranged in a twisted pattern to make them look thicker. With slightly thicker links than any of the other chains in the market, the Cuban link chain is undoubtedly the best chain when it comes to durability. The chains come in a variety of colors/metals as well: gold, platinum, white gold, yellow gold, sterling silver, platinum and can even be speckled with diamonds.

While the exact origin of this popular chain remains unknown despite claims from various hip-hop personalities, one thing is for sure, Cuban link chains have steadily risen to claim a spot at the top over the decades.
