A Figaro chain is special in the world of necklaces. Unlike others, which feature links equal in size and shape, these chains consist of a pattern of repeating links. Mostly, they have one longer link, sometimes rectangular, which is followed by a succession of smaller oval or round links. This pattern repeats, making the end result a unique and intricate necklace.

Figaro chains are a good choice for men and women who want something more interesting than a simple cable chain, but aren’t in the mood for such an ornate piece as a Byzantine chain. You can wear it on its own for a more elegant look, or combine it with a pendant if you want to make a bolder statement.
