Rounded, cube-like links give this sterling silver box chain an almost bead-like appearance, while a textured finish provides additional visual interest. This strong and precise chain is a great companion for pendants, drops and dangles. Box chain has squared-off links that resemble cubes; they are sturdy chains, ideal for pendants. In rounded box chain, the links are created from half-round wire, giving the finished chain a rounder profile. 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.
