Chain No.1 Black Buffalo Horn & Rhodium-plated Clasp

Online Exclusive

$198

Limited stock available
A versatile piece of jewelry which can be worn in many different ways. The links are hand carved from domestic black water buffalo horn*, and it closes with a rhodium-plated clasp.

Experiment with this piece and adapt it to your mood and outfit. The clasp can be hooked into any link of the chain, offering multiple variations. Buffalo horn* is lightweight and warm on the skin, of a beautiful deep black with a sheen on the surface. The chain shows the subtle irregularities of a handcrafted piece. The clasp is hand made of solid brass and plated with silver and a rhodium top coat. Rhodium is a precious metal from the platinum family, it has a brighter shine and is harder than platinum.

*domesticated water buffalo are precious farm animals across Asia, and a buffalo would never be killed for its horn. It is harvested as a 'byproduct' after the animal's death and used as a purely decorative item (unlike the horn from wild and threatened species like rhinos, which is illegal to trade and driving them to extinction because of the myths of medical benefits attached to it).

The chain links are carved from solid horn, so every second link has been cut on one narrow side and reclosed in order to assemble the chain. This is almost invisible, you can see it on some of the images when zooming in. The horn is extremely sturdy and almost unbreakable, in case of strain a link may reopen slightly – very easy to put back together with a tiny drop of glue.

Meet The Designer

ARLETTE ESS is a luxury accessories label based on artworks by founder and owner Arlette, a visual artist specialising in ink drawing. All the scarf designs are based on originals of monochrome indian ink artworks. The drawings have an emphasis on texture, which translate into intricate, refined prints with an understated elegance. The label started with her signature fur prints. Arlette often uses animals as subjects, but is interested in the meanings we project into them. Therefore the content of her collections draws from the collective cultural history, a part of our identity we share through image and myth. Her scarves are what she calls ‘honest luxury' products, without any compromise on the material quality or the production process. The choice of manufacturing and quality follows the ‘buy less, buy better’ ethos, so a silk scarf will look and feel great for a lifetime.
