it hangs loosely around the neck and falls just at the collarbone. On a plus

Popular for its strength and how shiny it is, the Omega chain is made of
individual metal plates lined up side by side and crimped to an underlying mesh
base. There are both flat and round versions of this chain and it can be
reversible. Popular for its overall strength and its reflective qualities. Omega
chain is made up of metal links assembled on a wire or woven mesh that form a
tube. The embedded wire is what provides the strength. The Omega chain is
somewhat flexible, but it is still sufficiently rigid that it retains its ring
shape when worn.
