Silver Pendant Bails (chain loops).
Find prices in the review page drop down for silver medals where offered.

This is a good time to have us braze (solder) the Bail closed so you do not loose your pendant. The factory supplied Bails are 2 to 3 mm rings and not soldered closed. Add a day for our shop schedule and to the usual ship out time. It's worth the extra wait to get the Bail installed properly upfront and save time, money and travel.

Where options are offered you may have our shop install these optional pendant loops (known as Bails) to accommodate different size chains. Select "Optional Chain Loop" prior to adding a pendant to the cart. There is a nominal part and shop charge depending on size. The charge is very reasonable given that most jewelers charge on an average $30 minimum for this premium service. It's a good idea to get it done up front and save yourself the time and money.

Optional V-Style Bails are brazed on with silver solder.
Some images of medals show earlier sheet metal V-Bail no longer used.
These new v-bails we are using are much stronger as they are cast, not sheet metal.
Bails are silver brazed on pendants in GemOptions Jewelry shop.
These bails fit all our optional chains and can be used with our continuous chains.
Continuous chains must be installed while brazing into place.
