This is our heavy-weight, largest sterling silver Byzantine chain mail bracelet, inspired by historical jewelry design and traditional metalsmithing techniques. We've added our personal "stamp" to modernize this favorite classic chain mail design, (originating in the 4th century AD).
We begin with solid sterling silver wire, create each individual ring by hand, pattern them together, weave in our forged and chased beads, and secure with our hand-stamped toggle clasp. A polished black patina to brings out the pattern of the chain and the textures of the chasing and stamping. The hand-stamped patterns in the beads and clasp will vary from one bracelet to the next, so there will be no two exactly alike.
Typically, the average woman’s wrist size is 7.5” and the average man’s is 8.5”.
Need help finding the best size for you or a gift? Wrap a string snugly around the wrist and measure that length. Add either 1/2” for snug fit or 1" for comfy fit to find your bracelet size. So, if your wrist measures 7" and you like your bracelet snug, pick a Medium (7.5") size. If you like a little looser fit, choose a Large (8") size. (Most people prefer comfy fit.) If you don't see your size, please contact us for a custom fit.
*Custom price will vary.
