The 36" BILIT chain is a heavy duty 8mm link. If you have bought a piece with one of our larger bails and the piece has some weight to it then this chain would be a perfect fit. Heavy angular links feel significant in everyway. The clean lines of this piece are also nice on their own without a pendant. solid 316L stainless steel is the most inert material there is. The same metal used in medical implants. It will not discolor or irritate the skin.
