Men's chains are always a hot seller in the world of hip hop. Traditionally, gold and silver tone chains have dominated the scene. Often times, heavy figaro link chains, franco and rope chains are the standard for rappers and hip hop inspired celebrities world wide. However, in recent years, men's chain designs were being made with diamonds as well. What once was a women's style is now made larger and more masculine for men with no budgets. These types of chains can feature up to 100 carats of diamonds and other gemstones. They are often custom made by jewelers and not available in the mainstream jewelry market. Online retailer Hiphopbling.com has just released a new line of mens 1 row chains, made with crystals that shine like diamonds. This gives buyers the look and feel of a diamond chain without the high cost.
Diamond 1 row chains are often the same style as tennis bracelets for women. They are just made longer and thicker. The design is a very intricate one that requires a lot of precision, otherwise the necklace will bind up. Each link features a stone that is set by hand, which is why these necklaces and chains are so expensive. Most of the cost goes to labor. A jeweler can spend many hours just crafting one necklace and making sure it is perfect.
These types of necklaces, even when made with fake diamonds would cost over $5000 at most jewelry shops. Silver and gold cost is skyrocketing, and the amount of labor is too high on a single piece. Hip hop bling has released a new line made with crystals and base metal at an extremely affordable price. This is because the power of mass production and bulk purchasing of materials aided in dropping the costs significantly. These necklaces are available for under $30 on the website and has been a hit ever since released in early 2011.

The colors include everything from all black stones to all blue, all pink, checkered black and clear, checkered black and purple and more. In total there are over 40 color varieties to choose from.
