RHODIUM PLATED SILVER V-CUT FRANCO CHAIN
The Franco link design is based on the curb pattern used by Italian manufacturers. Place two to four curb necklaces flat against each other and interweave the 'v' shaped links and you will create a Franco link chain. Ideal for use with medium weight pendants.
Available in lengths 16" - 30" and as a mask/glasses chain.
A precious white metal from the Platinum family, Rhodium costs eight times more than pure gold (23 times more than 9ct Gold) and four times more than its relative Platinum! A very hard and scratch-resistant metal, it is used to plate Silver, where it also prevents it from tarnishing. As it is whiter in appearance than White Gold and Platinum, it is often used as a coating and is sometimes referred to as Rhodium flashing. It is often electroplated on the shoulders or prongs of Yellow Gold rings, in order to create an illusion setting for Diamonds.
