Byzantine chains feature complex and intricate designs. The stunning pattern of the Byzantine chain is very distinct. Composed of interlocking oval links, Byzantine chains are a bit stronger than the normal chain. Byzantine chains have many names.  They are also sometimes called King’s Braid, Etruscan, Birdcage, Bird's Nest, Fool’s Dilemma, Idiot’s Trap and Idiot’s Delight. The intricate and elaborate chain design is thousands of years old and one of the first chainmaille patterns.  These regal Byzantine chains are perfect for vintage designs and dates back to 300 BC. Byzantine chains are breath-taking alternatives to a regular chain. It is a variation on the Box chain whose links point in the same direction vs. byzantine chain whose links alternate in direction. The chain is a four in one link chain.
