PLATINUM ROLO CHAIN
Looking for the perfect Platinum chain to complement a fabulous pendant? Look no further...
This fine Rolo chain is constructed of half round wire in symmetrical links. The resulting appearance is that of links of metal strips as opposed to wire, and is heavier than a standard Cable chain. It is also immensely strong.
Available in 16"-24" lengths. Please contact me if you require a length outside this range.
Platinum is a third heavier than 18k gold and is the most expensive metal used in making jewellery (other than the rhodium used in plating). To help comprehend the rarity of platinum, it was once suggested that if all the platinum in the world was poured into an Olympic swimming pool it would not even cover your ankles! In the 18th century, the rarity of platinum was brought to the attention of King Louis XV of France, who declared that it was the only metal fit for a king.
Platinum starts off shiny when new and develops a patina with normal wear. The patina is essentially composed of many tiny scratches on the metal and will give the metal a more matte appearance.
