Weighty 20" Foxtail Braid Chain Necklace by Balestra in 18k Gold
* * SOLD * *
A weighty, 18k yellow gold, foxtail-link chain, manufactured by the Italian makers, Balestra. This 20" chain is comprised of solid, looping links that overlap in a braid-like manner. This is luxurious, but not ostentatious— it has a perfectly fluid hand, and lays beautifully in wear. This chain makes an elegant statment, worn on its own, and it is substantial enough to support a large pendant. Closure is a spring ring clasp. This is marked 750 (for purity), Italy, and for the makers Balestra.
