Chainmail was first used as a way of making protective garments for soldiers and warriors in antiquity. In the modern era, it has become widely used to create beautiful jewelry. The Byzantine weave, which dates back at least 2000 years, is a popular pattern and is often used to create heavy chain. When small links are used, the resulting chain is more delicate but still durable enough for regular wear.
The Purple Raven Boutique uses small jump rings with an interior diameter (I.D.) of 3 mm to create the necklaces, bracelets and earrings in its Byzantine collection. This size of ring creates a rope style chain that is flexible and very comfortable to wear.
This listing is for a jewelry set consisting of a 20 inch Byzantine weave necklace, 8 inch bracelet and matching earrings made of 3 mm I.D. jump rings in 14/20 rose gold-filled metal. The necklace and bracelet are fitted with a matching lobster clasps. The earrings feature posts and nuggets and have an overall drop of 1.25 inches. Shepherd hook style ear wires are available by request at no extra charge.
This set is offered at a special price (20% off the price of each separate item).
The warm color of the rose gold-filled metal brings a richness to the rope-style chain. Its classic style and simple elegance make it a timeless piece. The rose gold-filled metal is heirloom quality material and gives the look and feel of a solid gold handmade piece at a fraction of the price. This would make a spectacular bridal or anniversary gift.
Each piece comes in a two-tone box with a magnetic closure. Both the bracelet and necklace can be shortened at no charge upon request. If you require a longer length, please contact me regarding an estimate (time and extra cost).
Applicable taxes will be added as required by law.
