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. This bracelet is plated with fine silver to ensure a bright white color and to help protect against tarnish.
Formed by a repeating pattern of interlinked jump ring pairs, Byzantine chain tends to be substantial and highly flexible.
• Because this item is plated with fine silver, we strongly recommend that it not be subjected to soldering. The fine silver plating may burn off, leaving the finish discolored and requiring you to re-plate the item.
• 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 findings 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.
