What is Sterling Silver?

Sterling Silver is 92.5% pure silver, with an additional 7.5% alloy - usually copper and zinc. This gives the metal far greater strength than pure silver, making it more suitable for items such as fine jewellery.

More About Heavy Stirling Silver Byzantine Chain Necklace

HISTORY

A byzantine chain is a piece of jewellery that has definitely earned the title of king among necklaces due to its refined workmanship and high-quality materials. It is hard to imagine the music scene without the massive byzantine chain, because rappers and musicians are absolute fans of this type of chain. The fascinating look of the byzantine chain is achieved through a special composition of the chain links. This chain consists of several round and oval loops, which are joined together in pairs. Watch out now it gets a little more complicated! The process starts with two parallel eyelets that are connected with a vertical pair. The entire arrangement is fixed with another pair of vertical eyelets, which are folded over to the back. This causes the second pair of loops to pull apart and form an acute angle. Almost done - between the second and third pair of eyelets, a last pair, again vertical, is then hooked in. The fourth pair then simultaneously forms the last and the first of the chain links. Thanks to this ingenious processing, the chain remains flexible as all links can move freely. And the chain gets a compact look, which also provides for the certain weight. Since this process takes time and craftsmanship, high-quality material is also generally used for this purpose in order to give the chain an appropriate value.
