This sterling silver choker-length necklace features a 0.7mm box chain with 2mm round bead accents spaced evenly along its length, providing visual interest. The result is a chain that is pretty enough to wear alone, but also makes a nice complement to delicate drops or pendants. A 4" chain extender with a bright end bead allows for adjustment of the necklace length from 12" to 16". This chain is plated with fine silver to ensure a bright white color and to help protect against tarnish.
Box chain has squared-off links that resemble cubes; they are sturdy chains, ideal for pendants.
• 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 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.
