A Fetter-and-Three chain is a type of chain consisting of one long and three short links, exactly like the one depicted in the Fetter-and-Three logo.
Fetter is also an old English word for a chain, the type used to restrain a prisoner about the wrists or ankles. Jewellery, though not used to restrain a person, is also draped around the body.
Three refers to the three aims of the Fetter-and-Three brand namely:
- Innovative design
- Quality workmanship
- Introducing new methods, ideas and beautiful products to the exciting, vibrant and ever-changing jewellery industry worldwide.
