This elegant and versatile .925 sterling silver chain is crafted from 30 gauge flattened wire, welded closed then 'drawn' or elongated into 2x1mm rectangular links. There are approximately 14 links per inch. Use for lightweight pendants, charms, and gemstone and pearl drops, or group with wire-wrap gemstone links for custom chain designs. The inside diameter will support up to a 26 gauge jump ring or wire. Note: silver chain can be fragile, so take care during assembly and wearing, to prevent breakage.
