Chain Loop Bail: The factory supplied chain ring is unsoldered and can easily open causing risk of loss. This unit is upgraded to a premium cast sterling silver flared style chain loop (known as a bail). This chain bail is silver brazed on in GemOptions shop. The medal will dangle freely with this bail style and will not pull apart causing risk of loss. This bail accommodates most chains up to a 4 mm.
Chain: The chain supplied with this version is the 2 mm x 18" factory supplied plated chain. Many people are happy with these chains, however upgrading is recommended. Ring eyes on factory-supplied chains are not brazed closed causing risk of loss. You may purchase a variety of high quality chains for this medal in our chains section that all have ring eyes’ soldered reducing chance of loss. Sorry, factories do not credit for the standard chain. Thus you will receive both the factory chain and any upgrade chain(s) as ordered.
Special chain note: This note is for those purchasing a 24 or 30-inch endless chain to go over your head without the use of a clasp in the chains section for this medal. Please instruct us to braze the ensemble together in the "Special Instructions or Comments About Your Order" during checkout. This is a shop job, as you cannot put them together yourself. There is no extra charge as we assemble chain, bail and medal together prior to silver brazing the bail on the medal creating an inseparable assembly. Thank you.
