About the piece:
The Solstice necklace is a unique statement piece. The double box style of the chain is very rare and will definitely get some attention. Solstice refers to the shortest or longest day of the year. The chain is designed to be dense and durable, forming almost a completely solid shape from certain angles. The Solstice is a unisex piece, it’s moderate thickness allow it to work well on most necks. The only consideration you should make is mixing metals. When you mix gold and silver jewellery into your styling, it can look confusing and busy.
The piece is made by forging square-shaped wires into square rings, which are then stacked two wide and linked together. This is how the chain style gets the “double box” name. A normal “box” style of chain has only one thicker ring instead of the double link featured in this piece. The 50cm version of this chain sits high up on the chest, while the 60cm version drapes down to the mid-chest. The 45cm is quite tight, and the 70cm will sit very far down the chest and is best layered over thick winter clothing. Click here for more info on chain sizing.

I personally guarantee the sterling silver I use does not cause, support or benefit unlawful conflict, or contribute to human rights abuses or breaches of international law.

Every Urban Sterling chain is covered by my lifetime warranty guarantee.

Note that some of my necklaces may have very slight distressing incorporated into the design, as is typical for handmade products.
