For the every day and every outfit grab and go solution, this is it. Great as a choker, but with the little black dress it loves to be worn around the belly button for extra punch. This is the same hammered electrical wire seen in other designs and is ultra light weight. The short version is a big seller with men. Long version about 2 to 2.5 inches and Short version is about 1 to 1.25 inches at the center strand.
