9CT GOLD 3.5MM FIGARO CHAIN
Timeless modern 1980s style 9ct Yellow Gold Figaro chain! This classic minimalist linked necklace is comprised of open metal links and secures with a lobster claw clasp. A beautiful piece of fine Italian jewellery. 16-24"" in length.
This chain is also available as a 7.5" chain bracelet and in a 10" anklet.
Figaro is not really a style but a very popular variation. A number of standard links (usually three) precede an elongated link all the way through.
The European exploration of the Americas was fueled in no small part by reports of the gold ornaments displayed in great profusion by Native American peoples, especially in Mesoamerica, Peru, Ecuador and Colombia. However, for the indigenous peoples of North America gold was considered useless and they saw much greater value in other minerals which were directly related to their utility, such as obsidian, flint, and slate.
