Its features include a twisting oval shape for each link which resembles rope when all assembled together. These chains can come in many styles: white gold Cuban link chains to the normal yellow gold, or even speckled with diamonds.

There is no denying the popularity of Cuban link chains for men. Most of the chains we sell at Trax happen to be of the Cuban link chain variety, and for good reason: these chains are strong, dependable, and go well with almost any outfit. They are a classic design that will never go out of style.

When choosing your Cuban link chain, consider what length you’d like your chain to be, as well as what type of gold and whether you want diamonds or not. A big factor in the way the chain looks is also the size of each link and its thickness which makes up the entire look of the chain. Heavier and thicker links will create a heavy  looking chain, which may be the style you’re going for. These chains can create a strong statement when worn.

As for the length of the chain, that depends on the look you’re going for, as well as the thickness of your neck and how low you want it to hang. Men’s chains typically come in lengths from 22 inches to 28 inches. Consider getting a longer length chain if you are a big guy; it will be better suited for your frame and size. Likewise, if you have a slighter build, you should consider getting a chain around 24-26 inches, which is a safe length for the average man.

You should also consider how often you want to wear your chain when you select one for yourself: a lighter chain is easier to wear more often and is less weighty. But if you want one to make a statement with, one bespeckled with diamonds or a heavy chain may be more suitable. Whichever chain you choose, you can’t go wrong with a Cuban chain link style.
