                      FAQ

                      What Is The Best Cuban Chain Length? 

                      The best Cuban chain length depends on many factors. These include neck size and body size. Here are some recommendations to get an idea of which chain length is best for you.
                       
                      For males, anywhere between 18 - 22 inches is perfect for the Cuban chain. If your Cuban chain is thick then go for the higher range of this length range. 
                       
                      For females, anywhere between 16 - 20 inches is perfect for the Cuban chain. For a choker-type fit, go for the lower end of this length range. For a looser fit, go for the higher range of this length range. 
                       

                      Do Cuban Chains Rust?

                      Whether your Cuban chains rust depends on the materials it is made from. If your jewellery is made from brass, then over time it can rust with exposure to sweat from the skin from daily wear.
                       
                      Our Cuban chains are stainless steel, making them tarnish and rustproof. Bring them in the shower, wear them in the pool or work out with them with no problems!
