Vintage Indonesian Wheat Link Chain Necklace, 6mm, Genuine, High Grade Silver, 37 Grams, 47cm (18 1/2″)
This is a vintage, dating from early to mid 20th century, genuine, solid, high grade silver, wheat link flexible chain necklace, from Indonesia. This is the older type of handmade chain, not the newer machine made chains that are readily available these days.
Through wear over the years it has become smooth and supple.
The making of the chains has been beautifully executed. The sterling silver end caps have a strong 'S' clasp for closing. The clasp has been marked with 925 - sterling.
There is natural tarnishing between the links from age - (not oxidization) - and can be cleaned.
