At Kate & Kole we sell all of our pendants with a matching material chain.
So a silver pieces comes with a silver chain, gold plated and filled pieces come with a gold filled chain and a solid gold pieces comes with a solid gold chain.
Solid gold chain is expensive, that is why we have always offered a gold filled options which is much more affordable.
However, we find on our plated or filled pieces the chain is the first piece to tarnish. This is because the piece that comes in contact with the skin the most is the chain. We now offer a solid gold chain sold separately. So you can purchase a plated pendant and add a solid gold chain to make sure your piece is going to look its best for the longest amount of time. The pendant is the main cost of materials so there is no discount for a chain upgrade, we have also kept our prices low for the solid gold chains to make this an affordable option.
Our solid gold chains are made in Italy and are of the highest quality. They come from and Australian supplier who is a member of the Jewellers' Association of Australia.
