Gold chains come in different types, texture, length, and thickness. The most common type of gold chain, though, are rope chains. Rope chains are uniquely designed chains that look exactly like a rope.
Solid gold chains are chains that are full of gold. They are not necessarily 100% gold, or 24k, since pure gold is not a sturdy material for jewelry. Solid gold chains have 9k-24k karat numbers depending on the amount of gold alloy included in the gold chain, with 24k having 99.9% gold alloy and the weakest.
Among the karats, 18k and 14k are the most popular because of their excellent gold and metal alloy proportion. These gold chains have 75% and 60% of gold allowed, respectively. On the other hand, the lowest karat available is 9k with 37.5% of gold alloy.
However, between these different karat numbers, 9k gold chains are the sturdiest and cheapest gold chains. So you can get quality gold chains at an affordable price, definitely making them worth the purchase.
Gold-filled gold chains, also called rolled gold, are those chains that are made by blending gold sheets to any base metal such as silver, copper, zinc, etc. gold-filled chains are in between solid gold chains and plated gold chains.
Hollow gold chains are made up of gold alloy, just like solid gold chains. However, hollow gold chains have hollow centers that look like a tube. Hollow gold chains are made just like this because manufacturers want to reduce the amount of gold being added to a piece of jewelry.
Also, by reducing the amount of gold alloy from each piece of jewelry, manufacturers can mass-produce gold jewelry at a much more affordable price while retaining good quality gold. Although most hollow gold rope chains are real (depending on their karat number), others are fake so look out for those. Since hollow gold chains are not full gold, they are less expensive than solid gold.
When purchasing gold rope chains, you might want to consider a few things beforehand. Like, is it solid or hollow gold? This page will give you a few things to remember to differentiate a solid gold chain from a hollow gold chain.
In conclusion, if you don't know what to purchase between solid gold rope chains or hollow gold rope chains, we recommend that you purchase solid gold diamond cut rope chains instead. They are much better than hollow gold rope chains since they are sturdier have more gold alloy contents.
Photographic History of the Spanish-American War, p. 335. William McKinley1843--1901William McKinley, the 25th president of the United States, was born in Niles, Ohio on January 29, 1843. He enlisted as a private during the Civil War and distinguished himself in action earning the rank of major in 1865. He served in Congress from 1876 to 1890 and became a strong supporter of protective tariffs. McKinley was elected governor of Ohio in 1891, serving a second term in 1893. By this time, McKinley was considered an important national leader. In 1896, the Republican national convention nominated him for president, on a platform stressing protective tariffs and the maintenance of a monetary standard based on gold.
"At midnight I weighed the anchors and left the anchorage at Cabo del Isleo, in the island of Isabella. From the northern side, where I was, I intended to go to the island of Cuba, where I heard of the people who were very great, and had gold, spices, merchandise, and large ships. They showed me that the course thither would be W.S.W., and so I hold. For I believe that it is so, as all the Indians of these islands, as well as those I brought with me in the ships, told me by signs. I cannot understand their language, but I believe that it is of the island of Cipango that they recount these wonders. On the spheres I saw, and on the delineations of the map of the world, Cipango is in this region. So I shaped a course W.S.W. until daylight, but at dawn it fell calm and began to rain, and went on nearly all night. I remained thus, with little wind, until the afternoon, when it began to blow fresh. I set all the sails in the ship, the mainsail with two bonnets, the foresail, spritsail, mizen, main topsail, and the boat's sail on the poop. So I proceeded until nightfall, when the Cabo Verde of the island of Fernandina, which is at the S.W. end, bore N.W. distant 7 leagues. As it was now blowing hard, and I did not know how far it was to this island of Cuba, I resolved not to go in search of it during the night; all these islands being very steep-to, with no bottom round them for a distance of two shots of a lombard. The bottom is all in patches, one bit of sand and another of rock, and for this reason it is not safe to anchor without inspection with the eye. So I determined to take in all the sails except the foresail, and to go on under that reduced canvas. Soon the wind increased, while the route was doubtful, and there was very thick weather, with rain. I ordered the foresail to be furled, and we did not make two leagues during that night." ...
"I went thence in search of the island of Cuba on a S.S.W. coast, making for the nearest point of it, and entered a very beautiful river without danger of sunken rocks or other impediments. All the coast was clear of dangers up to the shore. The mouth of the river was 12 brazos across, and it is wide enough for a vessel to beat in. I anchored about a lombard-shot inside." The Admiral says that "he never beheld such a beautiful place, with trees bordering the river, handsome, green, and different from ours, having fruits and flowers each one according to its nature. There are many birds, which sing very sweetly. There are a great number of palm trees of a different kind from those in Guinea and from ours, of a middling height, the trunks without that covering, and the leaves very large, with which they thatch their houses. The country is very level." The Admiral jumped into his boat and went on shore. He came to two houses, which he believed to belong to fishermen who had fled from fear. In one of them he found a kind of dog that never barks, and in both there were nets of palm-fibre and cordage, as well as horn fish-hooks, bone harpoons, and other apparatus "for fishing, and several hearths. He believed that many people lived together in one house. He gave orders that nothing in the houses should be touched, and so it was done." The herbage was as thick as in Andalusia during April and May. He found much purslane and wild amaranth. He returned to the boat and went up the river for some distance, and he says it was great pleasure to see the bright verdure, and the birds, which he could not leave to go back. He says that this island is the most beautiful that eyes have seen, full of good harbours and deep rivers, and the sea appeared as if it never rose; for the herbage on the beach nearly reached the waves, which does not happen where the sea is rough. (Up to that time they had not experienced a rough sea among all those islands.) He says that the island is full of very beautiful mountains, although they are not very extensive as regards length, but high; and all the country is high like Sicily. It is abundantly supplied with water, as they gathered from the Indians they had taken with them from the island of Guanahani. These said by signs that there are ten great rivers, and that they cannot go round the island in twenty days. When they came near land with the ships, two canoes came out; and when they saw the sailors get into a boat and row about to find the depth of the river where they could anchor, the canoes fled. The Indians say that in this island there are gold mines and pearls, and the Admiral saw a likely place for them and mussel-shells, which are signs of them. He understood that large ships of the Gran Can came here, and that from here to the mainland was a voyage of ten days. The Admiral called this river and harbour San Salvador.
A cacique and high lord, named Hatuey, had fled from the island of Hispaniola to Cuba with many of his people, to escape from the calamities and inhuman acts of the Christians. Once in Cuba, he received news from certain Indians that the Christians were coming there. He gathered many or all of his people together and said to them: "By now you know that they are saying that the Christians are coming here. And you know how they have finished off this one and that one, and those peoples in Haiti (which is Hispaniola). They are coming to do the same thing here. Do you know why they do it?" They answered, "No, unless it is because they are by nature cruel and evil." Hatuey said, "That is not the only reason that they do it. They have a God whom they worship and love very much, and to get this God from us to worship it, they try to subjugate us and kill us." In his house Hatuey had a basket full of gold and jewels, and he said, "Here you can see the God of the Christians. If you like, let's do an Areito (traditional dance) for this God; maybe that way we will please it, and it will order them not to harm us." 041b061a72
