    I asked Cooksons about this a little while ago. They did indeed say its all in the catalogue. Maybe the more people who ask about it will swing them towards doing samples - it would be really helpful, so I hope so.

    I think companies, Cookson included, rely on the fact that we all buy things mostly finding that aren't fit for purpose, the wrong size or not what we though they were. I would imagine they make quite a lot of money from our mistakes:/

    yeah, but the catalogue isn't that great either in terms of the images and sizes are also hard to actually picture.

    I wasn't thinking of free samples, I'd happily pay for it.

    really? I hope you returned it. That's a bit out of order if you ask me.

    yeah, I just had a look. Too much choice! But again the images are rubbish, worse in fact than cookies. Even enlarging them it's hard to see what's what.

    Or if they could clarify that it is ok to purchase multiple short lengths?

    I buy all my chain from Curteis ever since Cookson discontinued my favourites. I agree it's impossible to work out what it's going to look like from the website pictures - I visited them at IJL at wrote down the codes of the ones I liked! However, I ordered a 9ct gold one that was the same code and description as the silver, assuming that it would be the same, but the links were a different size and weight, grrrrr!
