Gold necklace for men
The creation presented here is that of a rather large 18-karat gold necklace for men.
With a total length of 60 centimeters and a weight of around 40 grams, it is a masculine design made of links in the shape of hanged knots.
This original design is very different from the classic chain designs that you are used to seeing in jewelry.

The principle of chain links
We had already made a necklace in 18-karat gold very similar a few months ago, whose detailed manufacturing story is visible here.
In the case of this project, the links of the chain were different, as shown in this photo, but the manufacturing principle remained the same.
Hangman's knot-shaped knot, the rope-like thread
The work begins with the creation of a gold bar which will then be rolled and stretched until a sufficiently fine wire is obtained to be able to work.
18-karat yellow gold wire passed to the die to give it the correct diameter
Our thread is then twisted to give it the appearance of a rope.
Gold wire imitating a rope will be used for making chain links
The twisted yarn is then cut and shaped to make the links.

Links are then finalized by wrapping a wire around to represent a nut, then assembled together and finally, the necklace is polished.
