How Much is a 14K Gold Chain Worth?

How Much is a 14K Gold Chain Worth?

Gold jewelry is one of the most expensive types of jewelries, especially chains as they require more gold in their making. But you might wonder why some 14K gold chains or brands are more expensive than others. Or you might wonder how much you can get if you decide to sell your chain. But there is not a simple answer to how much a 14K gold chain is worth. In this blog post, we will talk about the factors that determine the value of a 14K gold chain.

What is 14K?

First, it’s important to understand the meaning of 14K. The “K” refers to the karat - in other words, the purity of gold. 14K is not pure gold as gold is a soft metal, so it’s often mixed with other metals to make it harder. A 14K gold chain contains 58.3% pure gold and other metals. At Bayam Jewelry, all our chains are made with 10K and 14K gold, so the higher the karat, the higher the cost. But the karat alone doesn’t determine how much the chain is worth.

Weight & Length


The weight of a gold chain is one of the most important factors in determining its value. For example, take a look at our Miami Cuban Link Chain Necklace 14K Yellow Gold - Solid and Figaro Link Chain Necklace 14K Yellow Gold - Solid. Both chains in 6 mm width and 24” length are made with 14K solid gold, but the Cuban Link Chain is three times more expensive than the Figaro Link Chain. But you can see that the links of the Cuban Link Chain are much thicker than the links of the Figaro Link Chain, which affects the weight of the chain. So while the Figaro Link Chain is 23.04 grams, the Cuban Link Chain is 65.60 grams. So the thicker and heavier the chain, the higher the cost.

But the length of the chain also impacts the weight and value. If the chain is longer, that means more links will be used, so the weight and cost will change depending on the size.

Design & Craftsmanship

When buying a gold chain, you are not only paying for the gold but for the design and craftsmanship as well. At Bayam Jewelry, all our chains are meticulously handcrafted by skilled artisans who put enormous time and effort into making each chain. Some chains have more complex designs, which require more time and effort, making them more expensive than other styles.



The brand can also impact the price of a 14K gold chain, as reputable brands offer higher quality materials with excellent craftsmanship. At Bayam Jewelry, we offer the highest quality chains. We also offer lifetime warranty for all our products against defects in material and workmanship, so we offer peace of mind together with excellent quality.

Market Price

The market price of gold is an important factor in determining a gold chain’s worth. Gold prices fluctuate daily based on various factors, so you should check the current market price to get an estimate on how much your chain is worth.

Calculating the Value Based on the Market Price

To calculate the value of your chain, you need to know its weight. At Bayam Jewelry, we list the weight of all chains in grams so check out your chain’s page to find out its weight. Then, you need to check the current market price of gold per gram from a reliable source. Multiply the weight by the market price and you should have an estimated value. But bear in mind that this calculation is only about the gold’s worth and does not involve other factors listed above. To be absolutely sure, you should take your chain to a jeweler who can give you a more inclusive estimate.


Gold is generally a good investment as their resale value may be higher, but there are a lot of factors that impact its value. If you decide to sell your chain, you should get quotes from different jewelers so you can get the best price possible.

If you are looking to buy a new 14K gold chain, you’ve come to the right place. At Bayam Jewelry, we guarantee that our 14K gold chains are worth the money. They are made with the highest quality materials with excellent craftsmanship so not only are they stylish, but they are also strong and durable.
