This densely woven sterling silver Byzantine chain is an impressive stand-alone chain, and can also be a strong base for added components. Slide a large-hole bead onto the chain, or attach dangles or charms to the exposed links. Though the chain presents a substantial look, the links are hollow, keeping the chain from being heavy to wear. Formed by a repeating pattern of interlinked jump ring pairs, Byzantine chain tends to be substantial and highly flexible. This bracelet is plated with fine silver to ensure a bright white color and to help protect against tarnish.
