Spanish term or phrase: Cadena forzada
Hi all,

I'm translating some web pages for a retail website from Spanish (Spain) into British English and I can't find the right word for a type of chain in a necklace. Please see an example below:

What would you call that type of chain in English please?

Many thanks :)

Reference information:
I found Forced Chain as a possibility, since forced refers to the design of the chain. Please, check the Website below.

Example sentence(s):
  • 18k white gold chain with hollow shape and forced design. The width of the chain in the thickest part is 1.80mm. The chain is available in 40 and 45cm. The total weight varies according to the submodel.

I believe it is a "trace chain", but there appears to be little consensus.
