Can anyone help me with the name and or AR of the weave used in the necklace chain?
It looks like a box chain variant like Ripples.

Thanks for your time.

That looks to me like just a bunch of short segments of probably boxchain bolted together in an interesting fashion. (with some beads, a 2-1 chain for length, and a pendant)

are you unclear on how it is constructed? the rings look like they might be 18swg 5/32.

From the small picture, it looks like a Byzantine variant sometimes called Olivia or Lylo.

I would say either Box or Olivia. It is really hard to tell from the picture.

As far as AR I would try around a 3.8 or round abouts.

Thanks for all the replies and tips.
I was most looking for the right AR for this weave. It looks like a piece of box mail connected at the top, but wasn't sure what AR would allow it to look like this.
I'm mostly interested in the necklace, the pendant will be replaced with something else.

The Google "name" seemed to be "arrow drop chainmail necklace"
