The platings on antiqued ball chain and accessories is not as durable as our typical platings. Just like items with a natural patina, normal wear will lighten the high points, while the crevices will remain dark. In order to keep the clasps dark, we recommend coating them with a spray lacquer sealer before wear.

Medium 3.2mm copper plated brass ball chain clasps, for use with 3.2mm bulk ball chain. Antiqued copper plated components are often used to give jewelry a warm and vintage look. These clasps hook both ends of the chain together, to make a necklace or a key ring. If the clasp appears too tight to fit on your chain, gently loosen the clasp with an awl or chain-nose pliers.
