Gold cable chain necklaces are traditional chains that women all over the world love. The chain is a simple unisex chain that consists of interlocked oval links. A cable chain is one of the most common chains paired with a pendant. However, it is becoming more and more popular for women to wear their gold cable chain necklaces plain and layered, especially in thicker and bulkier designs. The cable chain is built strong and can carry a heavy pendant even in dainty sizes. You can easily wear your gold cable chain necklace up or down depending on the occasion; that is why it is one of the most versatile chain necklaces you can get.
A classic cable chain has oval or almost round links that are uniform. The traditional design is sometimes modified to create interesting contemporary pieces. For example, the paperclip chain, a trendy chain style with elongated oval links, is a modernly feminine take on the cable chain. In both designs, the classic cable chain and the chic paperclip chain, the links are polished to reflect light, making the chain shimmer beautifully whenever light hits it.
Whether you are looking for a dainty gold cable chain to pair with your favorite pendant, a chunky statement piece to upgrade your look with, or a timeless paperclip link chain you can layer with other gold-toned necklaces, our list of the top 8 gold cable chain necklaces you need to get has you covered.
