Because of manufacturing processes, gold chains of similar length can vary slightly in weight. Because a significant proportion of the value of the chain is due to the amount of gold in it, clearly the weight of the gold will affect the chain's value. The minimum weight is therefore the lowest weight a particular chain should be, although frequently it will weigh more than this. This is particularly true of chains with fancy links, which are often hand finished.
