What is Rollo chain?
Belcher and rollo, or rolo chains are jewelry chains with uniform links formed from half round or low dome wire. The different wire raw material gives each link more girth. These are more expensive chains than lightweight cables. Rolos and belchers are used for higher end jewelry making.
What chain style shines the most?
The segments are connected tightly in twos or threes, with a twisting pattern so that it resembles an actual rope.
