Default Where to Buy Quality Silver Plated Snake Chains?

I am looking for good quality silver plated snake chains for my jewelry. I know there is a lot available on Ebay from China but they tarnish really fast. I would like to offer better quality to my clients. I don't want to go to Sterling silver as it would mean bumping up my prices too much.

Do you have good sources that you could share?

Thanks,

Lyne

I buy the majority of my chain from Rio Grande. I've found they have the best prices for what I buy, good quality, and fast shipping. However, I don't think they have silver plated (or silver filled) snake chains. I would be interested to know where to find these also. In the meantime, it might be worth browsing Rio if you haven't already...you might find something else you can use!

I purchase mine here:

They do tarnish over time but I keep mine in a ziplock bag and they are fine.

Thanks for your responses. I found a supplier of Sterling silver chains with really good prices, it's Atlantic Gems. Has anyone ever ordered from them?
