Cuban links, ropes, and Francos are the usual goto for necklace’s when on the market for a chain to wear with a pendant. Cuban links are the best for holding pendents and charms, its because of the round design allows your pendant to lay flat and offers the most strength due to the link thickness. Next would be the rope design its completely round and offers a nice amount of strength for every day wear it’s one of the most popular goto’s when it comes to deciding which necklace looks the best with their pendant, when it comes to ropes its best to get a solid rope or a semi solid rope. If possible stay away from hollow ropes if you’re grabbing a custom pendant. The Franco is the next strongest design but if solid it offers a good amount of strength it’s unique design compliments pendants well and will turn heads.
