Yesterday it was worn to defend, to protect - today it's worn to stand out in a crowd and take charge. The Byzantine chain is an ancient pattern using knot formations which reverse to mirror each other, joined by connector pairs that alternate between vertical and horizontal orientation. This beautiful 7.5 inch sterling silver byzantine style chain mail bracelet is crafted by hand. Made from 18 guage sterling silver loops, total weight of bracelet is approx. 3/4 ounce or 24.35 grams of 925 silver. Also included is a large lobster clasp for easy fastening and a tiny SS heart charm.
