Silver Honor Cords

Silver Honor CordsContents and Description

Silver Honor Cords come as a set of twisted cords, with a tassel on each end of the each cord (for a total of four tassels). The honor cords are shipped tied together, or separately, at your option. Each half-cord is around thirty inches long, measured from knot to end of tassel (about sixty inches long when spread out rather than folded at the knot). Each tassel is about four inches long. Honor cords are made from rayon (we do not offer silk). You can mix and match different color cords together. Alternative names for these products are honors cord, honor chords, and honors chords.
