The Curb Chain (also known as the cuban chain) is crafted out of oval links. It is a series of interconnected links that are twisted so they lay flat. Each link is twisted at an angle of 85 to 90 degrees & flattened with a diamond cut. Successive links are interlocked accurately in such a way that they lie flat (as if ironed down) against their neighboring links.

If you are familiar with a horse tack and recognize what a ‘curb chain’ on a bridle is, you can visualize the design of a curb chain.

The links are wider as compared to their thickness. The chain is designed to mold to the contours of the skin and to gently hug your skin in a comfort fit.

A curb chain is a variation of the cable chain. In fact, a thin curb chain with long links is so similar to a cable chain that the two chain designs become indistinguishable. The interlocked links are identical in both shape and size. The distinguishing feature of the curb chain is the flattening of the chain.

Curb chains are among the most durable chains. Also, they are easy to repair by an experienced jeweler in the unlikely event of chain breakage. The broken or worn links are first removed. Then the jeweler cuts through a good link and splices the two sections together to rejoin the chain. Finally the cut is soldered closed. The repair is virtually invisible.
