This is the loveliest niello chain I have ever had the pleasure of working with. The main chain is comprised of striped niello silver figure eight links and long oval silver niello links with gold figure eight links inside the silver striped ovals, each fancy link is connected to the other by a gold link. The secondary chain has open geometric silver links with niello enamel inlay. The chain is finished with a FACETED! yellow gold swivel hook and a striped silver niello bolt ring. You can clasp it a few different ways to adjust the length and the way it falls and you can hang your bits and bobs from the hook or bolt or - slide the big ones right onto the chain. The ingredients in this necklace date from 1900-20, are 800 silver and 9 to 14k gold.

From the Married Chains Collection by Ancient Influences. All of the ingredients in this necklace are recycled and vintage. I love using vintage findings, and am thrilled by the discovery of just the right split ring or hook for a piece.

Details.....The chain is 26" long and the links are 4.7mm and 4.3mm wide. The bolt ring is 11.5mm and the hook is 21mm.

Each item from this line of jewelry is unique and incorporates re-purposed vintage and antique pieces. Small imperfections are to be expected and considered part of their charm.
