The links of Curb chains interlock with one other when laid flat. The links stand tight together and are more or less square in shape, hence the name. This is a substantial and gorgeous chain! Looking for a more heavy look go for it and we recommend pairing it with some larger charms. Plated brass parallel curb chains available by the foot at Kamal Trading. You can choose to use them for earrings, bracelets, and long dangling necklaces.
