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.
This style of chain by the foot is also available by the full spool.
