The Ransom Necklace is inspired by the necklaces worn by U.S. Special Forces soldiers “in country”. During wartime, they were comprised of 24kt links that could be pried off, and used as instant currency to barter and trade - no hassle, no questions asked.
Each piece is hand carved by Chen, a Montagnard warrior who fought alongside the Green Berets during the Vietnam War and made from 1960s deadstock brass sash chain. Hardware is hand cut and shaped from military alice clips. Chen still helps train U.S. Special forces to this day. Made in North Carlolina, USA.
