Ask The Jeweler a Question

Hello Mr. Andoyan. Thank you for offering your expertise to answer questions for folks; very kind of you! Here is my question: A long time ago I purchased a beautiful pendant at a store. The pendant was lovely and I received several compliments on it however, surprisingly, I ended up receiving just as many compliments on the chain that it came with! Not very long ago, the chain broke. I lost the pendant and the chain in the outdoors unfortunately. Although I've done my very best to figure this out on my own via internet research, I've not had any success in identifying the style of chain....and I desperately want a replacement to use with other loose pendants I have. That's where I'm hoping you'll be able to help. :o) It was a lovely, 18" silver chain (mm size unknown) that was incredibly thin & delicate-looking. It reminds me of a shortened Figaro . . kind of like a Singapore . . but theres no twist in the chain. It is literally the most delicate, thin, dainty chain I've ever seen. Saw another one like it in a jewelry store, but could not find the name of the style because the jeweler was out and the sales clerk simply did not know. Unfortunately, I could not afford it. Do you know what kind of chain style I'm talking about? or, do you know of one to recommend that is very similar? Thank you SO very much! ~Kristie~
