Use these extension chains to add extra length to your necklace designs. A simple chain with a decorative puff heart finishes the end of the chain.
These need attaching to a jump ring at the end of your necklace, so will require pliers and an appropriate jump ring or split ring to attach. Once fitted to your necklace or bracelet fasten at any point along the chain with the catch on the other end of the necklace/bracelet.
If the extra length is not required the extension chain will hang delicately down the back of the wearer.
Plated metal is commonly used in fashion costume jewellery. A very fine layer of silver or another precious metal (measure in microns) is bonded onto a base metal, usually brass, copper, or zinc through a process called plating. Due to the thinness of the layer of the plated metal, over time and with excess use this layer may eventually wear away.
All our plated metal findings production is compliant with EU REACH regulations where required and certified by a program of scheduled batch testing products with the assay office. This ensures compliance with the following:
- EU Regulation No 1907/2006 concerning Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) regulates the use of nickel, lead and cadmium in jewellery products.
- Entry 27 of Annex XVII of REACH concerns the EU Nickel Directive and requires compliance with British Standard BS EN 1811:2011+A1:2015.
