 Cuban Chains Miami, Cuban Links Miami, Custom Chain Miami

Once a standard for famous rappers and celebrities in the 80s, these chains have become increasingly popular among stylish men and women. Today, you'll find prominent rappers like Jay Z, Drake, Kanye West and Kendrick Lamar sporting this style. Some of the most successful rappers, athletes and high-earning individuals have added Miami Cuban Chains to their collection. Cuban link chains have made a come-back and are a staple of luxury for anyone who loves jewelry and gold. 

The true Cuban Link originates in Miami. Often referred to as the Miami Cuban Link Chain, this design dates back to at least the 1970s. After gaining popularity, this style has been seen on many influential members of society. High-quality cuban links should be handmade and customized.


 Watch our video on how we made an amazing 1 Kilo Gold Cuban Link Chain. This goes to show the craftsmanship that goes into every one of our pieces. 


1. Rose, White, and Yellow Gold




White gold is made of a mixture of pure gold and white metals such as nickel, silver and palladium, usually with a rhodium coating. White gold is not made entirely of gold. The other metals help to reinforce the gold and increase its permanence. The value depends on the karat and how much was used to produce the chain. Dress up or down with a 10-karat, 14-karat or 18-karat white gold chain. cuban links Miami, Custom jewelry Miami, Eric CRM Jewelers

The pros of white gold include that it’s:

  • More affordable than platinum.
  • Alloyed with stronger metals than yellow gold, making it more durable and scratch-resistant.
  • Complements white diamonds better than yellow gold—according to some.
  • Complements fair or rosy skin tones.


Rose gold is made of pure gold mixed with copper and silver alloys. Rose gold encompasses the whole family of red, rose and pink gold shades. It’s a lustrous pinkish metal that doesn’t tarnish. But just like any color gold, rose gold jewelry needs to be polished and cleaned regularly. Rose gold is a favorite amongst collectors, known to be stylish and timeless. 

The pros of rose gold include that it’s:

  • Often more affordable than other metals because copper—the alloy used to make rose gold—costs less.
  • Very durable due to the strength of copper—making rose gold tougher than yellow or white gold.
  • A complement to all skin tones.

Our yellow gold cuban link chains feature fine hand craftsmanship that is exemplified into the classic cuban style. Yellow gold is made of pure gold mixed with alloy metals such as copper and zinc.

The pros of yellow gold include that it’s:

  • The most hypoallergenic of all the three gold colors.
  • The purest color of all the golds.
  • The easiest to maintain out of all three gold color types.
  • The most malleable and easiest for jewelers to manipulate.
  • A complement to olive and darker skin tones.

2. Thickness

We offer thicknesses ranging from 7mm up to 35mm. Whether you're looking for something low-key, or something a bit more chunky, our options will surely capture your personal style.




3. Karat

Higher Karat means greater percentage of Gold

Gold purity determines the price. The higher the gold percentage the more the chain will cost. The "Karat" is the unit we use to measure how much Gold is in a ring or a piece of jewelry relative to the other metals that are present. A higher Karat means more Gold in your jewelry. You can see from the image below that 18K Gold contains 75% Gold, while 9K Gold contains half that amount.




4. Length

Watch Eric has top-quality Cuban Link Chains made-to order and can vary in length from 18 inches to 30 inches. Depending on the karat, type of gold, and length, every chain is personalized to your taste and desired style.

5. Signature Box Lock
