A Figaro is a Belcher chain that runs 3 standard link for each double link. This combination is then twisted flat as per a cuban. Figaros are a classic slim necklace. Less seen as a bracelet. Most Sterling silver Figaro chains are machine made and most have the top and bottom shaved off to increase the flat effect. The clasp is almost always, to my mind, the awkward part of the bracelet. The link that is out of place. The part you wear on the inside. With intention to fix these flaws, Orme Paget Figaro chains are hand drawn sterling silver wire, hand bent into both rings double rings, and individually soldered to make up a ring Belcher and a double ring belcher. These chains are then twisted by hand until they both lie flat. The links are then cut open again on the original solder line and linked up again in the Figaro format. The clasp is one of the longer double loops. Matching the other rings in form but with a small V shaped gap. The bracelet is secured by pushing the corresponding V-shaped parts of the first ring and the last double-ring together at a 90 degree angle, creating a seamless clasp technique.
– 2.5mm thick 925 Sterling silver.
– Hand twisted cubans that have not be run through a roller always have a curl to them when hung by one end. Please expect this.
– When worn the cuban curve of each link sits perfectly.
