These sets are for the show ring only, they are approx 3-4mm thick and made from satin cord so are quite strong and very pretty. These come with clear beads as pictured.
the collar measurement is the measurement of the braided section only it does not include the chain part. The lead is approx. 40 inches long and has a handle at one end and is joined to the collar by a swivel so there will be no twisting.
