A bolt ring is attached with 3 interlocking links attached to a T-bar suspended from the bolt ring.  

With the aid of the bolt ring the collar can be worn in four different ways:

  3. The bolt ring at the front of the collar with another trinket suspended from the bolt ring, for example a locket, seal or medal. 
  4. Finally the bolt ring could be turned to the back of the neck showcasing the collar only.  

For a distinctly antique look and an incredible sense of vintage chic, this collar could be worn during the day with a chic blouse or in evening with a lovely cocktail dress.
