Chain BR36-U Vintage Chandelier Chain with Unwelded Brass links and Round Joining links

Chains are priced by the foot and this product will be supplied as a continuous length if possible. Chains with unwelded links can be re-sized to lengthen or shorten the chain as needed.

Link Size Link Type Height (in) Width (in) Thickness (in)
U55 Primary link 2.17 1.26 0.18
Connecting link 3/4 3/4 1/4

Variant Max Load (lbs) Weight per Foot (lbs)
U55 30 0.25

The “weight per foot” signifies the weight of a 1-foot section the respective chain, not the weight a 1 ft section can sustain. For example, if you order 8 ft of a chain that weights 0.25 lbs/ft, the total weight of that chain will be 2 lbs.

The “max load” is the amount of weight a chain can safely hold, regardless of how long it is. When selecting a chain, we recommend calculating the total weight of chain based on the length you need, like in the example above. Make sure that your total hanging weight (= total weight of fixture + total weight of chain) does not exceed the stated weight capacity.

Customize your fixture while showcasing your unique style with our decorative brass chain BR36-U. This chain is handmade with solid brass and is comprised of unwelded decorative links that are connected by solid circular links. The unique shape and intricate etching on the decorative links offer the perfect finishing touch for vintage lighting and decor. However, this style is so versatile that it complements modern, transitional, contemporary, and farmhouse lighting fixtures as well. Replace your old chain on lanterns, pendant lights, and chandeliers weighing up to 30 lbs for an instant refresh of any space. The decorative links are unwelded so the length of the chain can be adjusted as needed - however, please note that this chain must be hung by the circular connecting links, not the decorative links. The versatility of this chain cannot be overstated: besides use as a decorative lighting chain, BR36-U can also be used to hang indoor plants, picture frames, mirrors, wall decor, and even as curtain ties. Since brass is naturally rust-resistant, it can be used outside to add an elegant touch to hanging flower baskets, wind chimes, hanging outdoor signs, and other garden decor. Additional uses for this chain can be for crafts, costumes, and hobbies, as well as in light weight home improvement and DIY projects. Available in multiple finishes, you can easily elevate any lighting fixture (literally!)

Fast and easy to work with

A lovely chain arrived quickly. Unfortunately this particular chain will be to light weight to support the leaded lamp it is intended for. RCH was very understanding and made it easy for me to return this chain and order another heavier duty chain fo my purpose. The company agents have been very helpful in my original order and this return, including several prompt call backs to me to make this happen. Would highly recommend.

"Vintage" Perfection!

Thank you so much for having this stunning chain available in stock and delivered within just a few days! I had purchased a vintage crystal chandelier and didn't realize its original chain was too short for my dining room. You literally came to the rescue! The design, material and finish were absolutely perfect! My installer couldn't stop complimenting me on my outstanding selection of replacement chain. The credit is all yours! Thank you so very much! I wish I could post a photo!

So Beautiful!

I really love this chain - it looks perfect on my light fixture.

The customer service was terrific. They were out of stock of what I needed, but found a great solution.

High quality product and great service

I bought BR36-U for an antique light fixture. The antique brass finish is a VERY close match to the fixture and the style fits perfectly. I called the order in and had a very nice experience with RCH staff. I'd buy here again without hesitation.

Looks great with my crystal chandelier!

Fast shipping and excellent quality. I initially ordered the wrong finish in a different style. I showed them a picture of my chandelier hardware and they recommended this design which is a much better match than what I selected. I will highly recommend them to my family, friends and co-workers.
