[Source] Silver Chain

If price is a factor, as with Fire Mountain Gems, Rio Grande is a
terrible source for italian chain.

Unless you’re buying extremely small quantities, Italian chain
should only be bought from a company whose primary business is
wholesaling Italian chain. Companies who specialize in Italian chain
sell a lot more of it, and as a result they price it by weight and
work on much smaller margins.

No offense to anyone, nor to Fire Mountain or Rio; they are both
great companies and I buy from both of them, but not Italian chain.


There is a wholesale business in Denver, CO, by the name of Azur
Global Imports, 1-800-447-4583 azur1.com. They have Omega, cables,
snakes and a great variety of other chains, etc. Great source - just
a satisfied customer.
