Sterling silver and gold-fill are both great choices for making higher-end jewelry. We also carry bulk chain so you can create custom-length chains, but all the sterling silver, 12kt gold-filled and 14kt gold-filled necklace chains on this page are already finished with a clasp, making your job easy. Also called gold overlay, gold fill is made by using heat and pressure to apply a thick layer of karat gold on top of a less costly metal. This surface is 100's of times thicker than a plating, offering you precious metal supplies at reasonable prices. Choose from a great variety of chain types including popcorn chain, ball chain, snake chain, rollo chain, cable chain, and more. Wholesale prices are available when you purchase in bulk. These supplies work great for a variety of uses:
Wear the chain component as-is.
Slide on a pendant with a bail to make easy custom necklaces.
Embellish with handmade pendants, charms, and dangles.
