This sterling silver bar & link chain features lengths of open cable-chain links between straight bar links that have a diamond-cut twist-pattern that provides light-catching visual appeal. This chain is an ideal foundation for small pendants and delicate drops. Bar & link chain is defined by small links alternating with bar-style links. This chain is plated with fine silver to ensure a bright white color and to help protect against tarnish.
• 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.
