Our large weight plate is the size of a QUARTER (24mm). See the photo that compares this large one to the standard size (which is size of a penny) .
The large 45 lb weight plate necklace is made of solid sterling silver. Yup, it's all sterling silver from chain to pendant. The darkened part of the weight plate, the black stuff is black enamel laid over the sterling silver.
Men's necklace length: 20" or longer. 18" chains fit like a choker on a man. Women's necklace length: 16" or longer. 16" sits around base of neck.
Itty bitty details: The weight plate is 24mm diameter, the size of a quarter. It's 1.8mm thick. If you like smaller cutey things, I also have a mini weight plate necklace. There is an option to engrave a personal message on the back. I show examples in the photo gallery.
Oh! Did I mention that all my jewelry is handcrafted in NYC. It's carefully made here in America!
Care instructions for Weight Plate: To keep the black portions intact, do not use dips or immerse in water. Just use polishing cloth to clean tarnish.
