Silver jewelry chains have a long history as one of the first materials used by jewelers for making chains for necklaces, bracelets and other assorted jewelry items.  Sterling silver is made using 92.5% (.925) pure silver and 7.5% base metal. This is done because pure silver is too soft to be used as is.

Since 1967 Garlan has been one of the leading manufacturers of sterling silver jewelry chains sold wholesale in bulk by the foot or assembled to your specifications. Sterling silver chains are one of the most popular materials that we offer. Almost all of the items we manufacture in sterling silver can also be done in gold filled.
