If you love jewelry, you would know that not all pieces are created equal. When it comes to gold chains, the Cuban link chain stands above the rest in terms of style, durability &, most importantly, pure swag factor. This chain, along with men’s gold rope chains, is a variation on the hip-hop styles that are prominent since the 1970s, earning its Latin-inspired name because it was popular within the Cuban enclaves of Miami. People sometimes call these chains a Miami Cuban link chain as well because of its popularity in South Florida, but these days we see it all over the country, from Washington to Boston and from NYC to L.A.

This baller-approved jewelry showpiece has always been a part of the conversation among the fashionable elite, but it exploded in popularity sometime around 2012.

As expected, its fame hasn’t slowed much, as all the great hip-hop artists and fashion influencers have been sporting for the last 10 years. It’s a piece you’re going to want to add to your collection if your endgame is finding an eye-catching chain that matches your excellent sense of style.

What Is a Cuban Link Chain?

In the most basic sense, a Cuban link chain is a variation of the standard cable link chain. It features oval links that intersect in a rope pattern, and these links twist into a cable-like design, which gives it a bit of a traditional look.

What you should also know is that the Cuban link chain adds decorative detail in the form of a twisting rope-like pattern cut into each link.  Moreover, the Miami Cuban chain is one of the most classic & popular chain styles around, driving the perfect combination of luxury & brilliance.

Also, the Miami Cuban link chain is a stylish gold chain design that has a classic style with a bit of modern edge. This chain is perfect for all sorts of wearers & styles. Though you might consider it as somewhat traditional, this chain has some serious built-in swagger with trendsetters choosing it as a centerpiece or layering it with other gold chains.

What Makes It Unique?

Here are a few reasons why the Cuban link chain stands out from many other gold chains out there:

  • Hip-Hop Legends rock it well– You don’t have to ponder your eyes for too long to find a Cuban link chain draped around the necks of icons new and old. Versions of Cuban Chains started showing up in the hip-hop history books since the 1980s, with Big Daddy Kane, Slick Rick, and Biz Markie sporting theirs back in the day. It’s still ubiquitous among artists, including Usher, Jay-Z, DJ Khaled. And if you appreciate some classic freshness, Cuban Link Chain is the one for you.


  • It’s Extremely Versatile – Gold chains, in general, are among the most versatile pieces of jewelry you can own, but the Cuban link is exceptionally versatile. It can be worn as a bracelet or a necklace, with chains coming in lengths ranging from 20 to 30 inches and widths ranging from 4mm to 20mm. If you’ve got a specific outfit to flex with your Cuban link, you know you’ll get it just right, thanks to the sheer variety of options available out there.


  • It Can Be Blinged Out – Well, if you might want to go for the flashy style of a diamond-studded gold chain, the Cuban link is great because it has a relatively flat surface area due to which it can be smoothly frosted with diamonds. Generally, the pave diamond effect is used, which makes the surface look like it’s naturally brilliant and diamond-encrusted. There’s nothing quite like it.


  • It’s perfect for Showcasing Pendants – Cuban link chains come in a multitude of different thicknesses, weights, and lengths, and they serve as an excellent base for displaying your best pendants. If you’re trying to highlight your prized crucifix or a Jesus piece and want a little something extra, you should go for this chain. Just make sure it’s thick enough for your pendant.
