Standard cup chain


Standard Cup Chains
Classic cup chain with style

The standard cup chains consist of individual claw settings for rhinestones and a brass wire. In contrast to combination cup chains, the term “standard” refers to the uniform use of claw cups. Accordingly, we manufacture only one setting type in standard cup chains. The Swarovski standard sizes, such as settings in SS39 or SS45, drops in 14×10 mm and Rivoli stone dimensions, are particularly suitable for this purpose. Of course, we are happy to assist you with choosing the right gemstone. Besides the prior selection of the stone shape and the corresponding size, the spacing between the sockets is variable. With standard cup chains it is finally possible to combine class and style with just a few components.

Create unique necklace jewelry with the standard cup chains

Our standard cup chains consist of the claw setting, as the main component, and a so-called thread wire, as the connecting piece between the settings. There are two side slits along the settings, in which we thread the brass wire manually. The two lateral setting openings determine the final course of the chain.

In addition to the setting, you can also custom determine the position of the brass wire. That way, you can create a multitude of different pieces of jewelry. The central vertical course (“bracelet” no. 1) and the horizontal course in the middle (“Bracelet” no. 2) are suitable for the manufacture of bracelets. The course of the brass wire gives the standard cup chains their typical lying and close-fitting shape. The upper vertical (“Necklace” no. 3) and horizontal (“Necklace” no. 5) wire course is recommended for necklaces. The wire course gives the standard cup chains their typical “standing” shape. The shape also prevents it from tilting forward at the neck.

The timeless all-rounder among cup chains

The finished standard cup chains are already a fashionable eye-catcher. Whether in jewelry design for traditional or wedding jewelry or in fashion design for shoes or bags, our cup chains are suitable for every occasion and every area of use. With their high adaptability and durability, the standard cup chains are also suitable for further processing. You can use them to make necklaces, bracelets, earrings and other accessories for people, or brow bands, halter and dog collars for animals, for example.
