Vintage Indonesian Diamond Wheat Link Woven Chain Necklace, Bracelet Set, 13mm, 48cm
This set is vintage, dating from early to mid 20th century, genuine, solid, high grade silver, diamond wheat link flexible woven three chain necklace and bracelet, from Indonesia. This is the older type of handmade chains, not the newer light weight machine made chains that are readily available these days.
The making of the chains has been beautifully executed. The three strands have been woven tightly and through wear over the years it has become smooth and supple. The sterling silver end caps have a strong 'S' clasp for closing. Both clasps have been marked with 925 - sterling.
The necklace and bracelet are quite heavy in the hand at 93 grams (3.255 oz.) for the necklace and 42 grams (1.485) for the bracelet.
There is natural tarnishing between the links from age and can be cleaned.
