This "paperclip" style chain is a contemporary piece and has never been worn. We love this simple yet stylish chain! The oblong links are 14k yellow gold. The chain measures approximately 18 inches in length and each individual link is 4.2 mm or approximately 1/2 of an inch long. This chain is perfect worn on it's own or layered with other necklaces. This contemporary necklace features a large and easy to use lobster style clasp closure. Please feel free to inquire about availability in different lengths or sizes.
