This 14-karat yellow gold diamond-cut wheat chain bracelet component is open at the center with a .058" ID closed ring at each end; complete the bracelet with a link component, an engravable plaque, or a short length of strung or wire-wrapped beads. The bracelet is fully adjustable using a silicone-lined coin-shaped bead (7.1 x 3.4mm) that slides along the chain. Two round drops finish the chain and serve as a stop to keep the slider from slipping off the chain.
A variation of the rope chain, wheat chain is made with alternating figure-eight links that are closely interconnected to present a braided look and an almost square profile. Diamond-cut versions have facets precision-cut into the links with diamond-tipped tools. The facets are then polished to enhance the light-reflecting properties of the link surfaces.
