Measuring a total of 51cm (20 inches) this necklace sits comfortably just below the neckline; fastening at the back with a stainless steel lobster claw clasp. The historical context and traditional methods used for this jewellery gives it a real touch of class and sophistication.

Make this a complete and one-of-a-kind set by adding the men's chain mail bracelet to your order. Identical in the segmented design, together these pieces would make a real statement and form a sleek addition to any casual or formal outfit.

Traditional mail techniques have been used to produce this necklace despite it not following a particular mail pattern. Mail, meaning 'chain', is a historic style of armour that dates back to the Romans and Etruscans. It was made by a master craftsman and his apprentices by assembling hundreds of tiny mental rings into wearable garments for all over the body. The rings were usually made from steel or iron which was fed through small holes at hot temperatures until the metal took on wire form. As you can imagine, the production of mail can be a highly time consuming process, even today with modern tools.

Anjo Designs are a husband and wife partnership based on the Wirral who combine the traditional methods of mail with modern designs to create bespoke jewellery. Everything they produce is hand crafted with precision, taking reference from historic mail and traditional techniques. As with any hand crafted product, there may be slight difference between each piece and the pictures shown. Rest assured however, that all the jewellery Anjo produce has a great amount of time and care spent on it to ensure its high quality finish.
