Mithril is the most prized metal in Middle-earth. This rolo-style chain is made with Mithril quarried by the Dwarves from the Mines of Moria.
Gandalf described Mithril as follows:
"Mithril! All folk desired it. It could be beaten like copper, and polished like glass; and the Dwarves could make of it a metal, light and yet harder than tempered steel. Its beauty was like to that of common silver, but the beauty of Mithril did not tarnish or grow dim."
Details: The 24" long angled rolo chain is skillfully crafted in gleaming titanium, the closest Earthly metal to Mithril. Titanium is feather light while being extremely durable and will never tarnish.
Packaging: This item comes in a black drawstring pouch. Includes a Card of Authenticity.
Production: This is an item we keep in stock.

I wanted to love this chain so much! Rolo are my favorite style of chain and I want to support Badali because I am a huge Brandon Sanderson fan. But the chain I received had numerous imperfections across a number of links, where small sharp spots appear because the links in the chain don't line up properly where they've been closed. Again, want to love it, and I could maybe get over a link or two, but it's fairly noticeable if you run you fingers along the length of the chain. It is otherwise very beautiful and light, though, so perhaps I just got an unlucky draw.
Hi Michael- We're so sorry to hear that! Occasionally our chains need additional tumbling. We'd be more than happy to send you a replacement chain.
This titanium chain does not discolor and is sturdy enough to entrust your most valuable pendants to. I am a repeat customer for both of the mithril styles. Great for guys who don't care for delicate chains.
