Each 20" gold rope chain, clasp, and pendant is entirely plated with real 22K Yellow Gold and measures 2.5mm thick. Each piece comes neatly presented in it's own pressure stamped TTWD jewelry box.
The origins of daishō was around the Momoyama period, the final portion of the Sengoku era, a time of warlordism in Japan during the 1500–1600s. Translating to "big & little", Samurai would wear a typical long sword (katana) alongside a shorter one (tanto or wakizashi) for use at closer range.
Our vacuum ion plating binds a thick layer of real 22k Gold onto our lead-free, nickel-free, hypoallergenic base metal for a long lasting shine that won't irritate or turn your neck green. It's the same exact plating that high end luxury brands use for their fashion jewelry.
