Compared to other glass jewelry products, Swarovski uses higher quality materials. The process of creating even one crystal is also complicated. Swarovski crystal is a man-made precision-cut crystal glass by the Swarovski brand in Austria. ... To the untrained eye, Swarovski crystal can pass as a diamond. However, it has less brilliance and sparkle than genuine diamonds.
This Blue Swarovski Ichthus/Christian fish pendant is displayed on a sterling silver 3mm Maritime chain. Choose any length between 16 and 22 inches.
We sell all our 18k Gold Layered chains, Sterling Silver layered chains, Rose Gold layered, and our Austrian Crystal chains with an Unconditional Lifetime Guarantee, which we will gladly provide to you in writing with each sale.

WHY SHOULD YOU BUY FROM US VERSES A RETAIL JEWELRY STORE?
Solid 18K chains are prohibitively expensive and are too fragile to wear every day. Jewelry stores offer premade chain at ‘standard’ sizes, and charge again to adjust that size if needed! Once purchased, you’re on your own. Here at Inch of Gold, you get a custom-made chain which fits perfectly, at a fraction of the price, with the best guarantee in the industry. Our chains are made from the same gold as theirs…but the advantage of the layering process is it also adds to the strength of the chain, reinforcing the 18K gold and making it durable enough to wear every day.
What is great about purchasing Gold by the Inch is that you can design your own jewelry, whether it be a necklace, bracelet, anklet, eyeglass chain, or adding flair to your favorite hat! Your jewelry comes complete with a lobster claw or buckle clasp.
WE STAND BEHIND OUR INCH OF GOLD AND SILVER JEWELRY 100%
Only Inch of Gold and Silver chains have the added protection of ACRYSEAL*, a patented clear coat seal applied to every chain. We stand behind our products with pride and the confidence knowing you will fall in love with it and wear it forever!
WHAT IS GOLD PLATED, SOLID GOLD, AND GOLD LAYER/FILLED CHAINS
Gold plated is not gold jewelry. Gold plated is usually made of a base metal like copper, with a thin layer of gold applied over the copper. The gold plating can easily be removed by merely wiping it with a few strokes of an eraser. The copper is another reason your skin turns green, which is why we cannot recommend it for everyday wearing.
Solid gold is the highest in price and purity when it comes to shopping for gold. Due to the solid gold purity; it will not fade or tarnish over time. Since solid gold is also considered a soft gold, it is not recommended for everyday wearing. Surprising, solid gold is not always recommended when it comes to your everyday jewelry accessories.
Gold layered, also known as gold-filled, is what we recommend for everyday wearing. Gold layered will not break your pocketbook and nearly fits everyone's budget. What makes gold layered so popular, it keeps the solid gold appearance in color. Our gold layered jewelry is made using electricity to deposit multiple layers of 18k gold over a jewelers brass. Because of this, there is a .009% chance of an allergic reaction to our chains.
Our 18k gold layered jewelry has one other property which competitors don't have, a product called Acryseal. Acryseal is our patented sealer, which keeps our gold layered jewelry from fading over-time and looking bright in color.
18k gold layered jewelry can hold its color for over 30 years. We are so confident in our jewelry we carry an unconditional lifetime guarantee on all our 18k gold and sterling silver chain jewelry.
Just because your jewelry comes with an unconditional lifetime guarantee, does not mean you should not care for your jewelry. Just like solid gold jewelry, poor care such as wearing your jewelry while working with certain chemicals such as chlorine or solvent cleaners can affect your jewelry's beautiful luster it has from the first day you purchased it.
Use warm water and a mild soap-based detergent to clean your gold layered or sterling silver jewelry. Soaking your jewelry chain for no more than a minute. Never use a tissue or any other paper-based material to clean the pieces. Always pat the jewelry dry with a lint-free cloth.
HOW DO YOU MEASURE YOUR CUSTOM GOLD JEWELRY?
Use a flexible measuring tape and measure just above the wrist bone. Add ¼ to ½ inch to this measurement depending on how snug you like your bracelet to fit. If you do not have a measuring tape you can use a cord and measure it flat on a ruler.
You will need a mirror you can stand in front of and a soft flexible tape measure or a string.
Place the tape or string around the back of the neck where a neck-chain would sit. Take your time and adjust the length as it hangs in a gentle oval until it sits where you want the neck-chain to hang. Hold the string at this point and measure it to see how long it is, making sure that fingers in the way do not skew the length. If using a tape measure, look at it in the mirror to see the length or mark the spot with your finger, remove from the neck and record the length you need. FOR A PENDANT CHAIN, hold the string/tape in a gentle V? shape to simulate the weight of the pendant. Adjust the length until the base of the V? sits just above where you want the pendant to sit on your chest.
FOR THAT SPECIAL MAN IN YOUR LIFE:
If you are looking for a gift for your man, here is what we recommend.
For a small built gentleman, an 18” necklace would work best.
Medium man 20” necklace
Large build man 22” necklace
XLarge build 24” necklace
Anklets are a popular choice for Inch of Gold purchases. In our experience over 95% of women cannot find a perfect fit with a pre-made anklet anywhere.
Measure the widest point of your ankle around the ankle bone with the tape measure going straight around (not dipping low to one side or the other). Add 1 inch and send us this measurement. This will give you an anklet that sits just below the ankle, but not too low to catch on a shoe.

Yes, sterling silver does tarnish. This is a natural reaction the metal has with chemicals in the air. Frequent light polishing with a polishing cloth designed for sterling silver will help minimize tarnish.
Items plated with 14K gold, rhodium, or ruthenium (gunmetal) are extremely tarnish resistant.
