With an eight-sided link construction that catches the light, this adjustable sterling silver seamed snake chain features a movable silicone-lined bead that allows you to adjust the chain length to any length up to 18" (maximum). The end of the chain is finished with a stampable heart charm. The fine-silver plating adds to this chain’s brightness, making it a good choice for silver and white-metal pendants, drops and dangles. Seamed snake chain is created with soldered, machine-made curb-style chain that is compressed twice, producing the snake-like appearance and leaving behind a telltale seam visible along its length. This chain is plated with fine silver to ensure a bright white color and to help protect against tarnish.
• Fine chain is delicate and should be treated with due care to help prevent breakage.
• Because this chain is plated, we strongly recommend that it not be subjected to soldering. The plating may burn off, leaving the finish discolored and requiring you to re-plate the chain.
• IMPORTANT: Sterling silver is an alloy containing metals that react with chemicals found in air and produce tarnish; high moisture levels, exposure to sunlight and contaminants such as salt water increase this reaction. Take steps to protect your sterling chains by keeping them in airtight packages, use tarnish-resistant products (such as tarnish tabs or strips) that absorb harmful chemicals, and store sterling findings in a cool, dry place. Most tarnish is easily removed by polishing with a mild abrasive or soaking in an anti-tarnish solution.
