Alternatively, a solid oval disk is taken and two small cuts in the shape of the alphabet ‘O’ are made into it. The individual links so designed resemble the figure eight. Each oval is connected to the next single oval link in a rotating pattern at an angle of 90 degrees to the preceding link.

Jewelers often call this stud-link chain as Mariner Chain or Gucci chain.
