Weaving features

The snake chain is actually a separate subspecies of armor weaving. Its main feature is the location of the links at an angle to each other, which allows you to align the product in one plane. Reliably soldered links are tightly connected to each other, forming a strong and tight tourniquet.

These chains are often machine-made and are inexpensive, but there are also hand-made models that are more refined and expensive.

This knitting method has other names – a rope or a tonda – but it was the snake that became the most popular. And no wonder, because it reflects the very essence of the accessory, which is very similar to real reptile scales.

You can find two types of snake chains – flat and voluminous. In both versions it is not necessary to use only round links; there are original models with oval, rectangular or square elements, which looks very impressive, especially on thick accessories.

Size and thickness may vary too, and men’s chains are usually much more massive and heavier than more delicate women’s chains.

To give the jewellery more brilliance and radiance, a diamond cut is used, given the chains an incredible play of light, which looks especially attractive on gold items.

It is worth noting that the cost of a snake necklace depends on the following parameters:

  • Type of metal
  • Design
  • Total weight
  • Creation method

However, the price is far from the main indicator that influences the choice of jewelry. What is more important is its style and relevance, how the accessory fits your look and how it’s combined with other attributes of the image.
