Experience quality hand hammered craftsmanship fashioned in the ancient Egyptian tradition made right here in the USA. This hand hammered and hardened solid Nickel Silver alloy half collar is designed to gracefully lay around your neck flat on the skin or around clothing. Because we use bare wire to make our collars with no coating or plating, these handcrafted works of art can be polished to their original bright shine with A quality polishing cloth over and over again for their life time. Allowing your Chakra Collar to patina is another natural option that gives your collar that natural rustic and antiqued look. The Chakra Collar is designed off centered for an artistic and unusual appeal. The larger portion of the design is centered in the middle of the chest while the smaller side caresses your skin just below the collar bone. The Chakra Collar is easy to adjust with very small movements. To put it on, you simply pull open to the size of your neck, slip on from the back or side, push the two side designs together, allow them to spring back and separate, and simply center the larger side to the middle of your chest. Designed to look like fine silver, Nickel silver, also known as German Silver is an alloy blend that marries 65% copper, 17% nickel, and 18% zinc. German silver is designed to tarnish slower than silver and this semi-precious metal alloy is barely distinguishable from fine silver at its highest polish.
