I ordered this chain, aware of the small size. I also ordered it because it is supposed to be 17 ga. When I see "gauge" I assume this is the thickness, as I worked in the steel industry for years. However, this chain doesn't look or feel 17 ga. thick. It may have the equivolence of 17 ga wide strips of metal formed into loops. Feel like this is priced about right for what it is, a pretty, dainty, and sparkly chain.
I really like this chain. I used it in a gift with a one dainty pearl in the center. She loved it. This necklace looks dainty but felt very sturdy.
This chain is so dainty but strong. It is a sturdy chain with good sized links. Dainty and ladylike but not so small that it is difficult to work with. Highly recommended!
This is cute...but super tiny, which makes it difficult to put on a split ring. Still worked but be aware of it's smallness!
