Ring & connector chain is excellent for sleek simple geometric designs, and is strong enough to be used for belts and straps. Both sizes of this strong chain feature durable figure-8 connectors that can be carefully opened (instead of cut apart) so every piece can be economically used. It's tough chain, and requires sturdy round-nose jewelry pliers to open and close these connectors. Colors and platings include black chain (gunmetal chain), dark antiqued brass chain, antiqued copper chain, gold plated chain, silver plated chain, and economical, durable white plated chain. Note: Unfortunately, the manufacturer of many of our favorite styles of chain has closed. We are working on replacements -- Some styles on are their way now!
