Actually, Your Excellency, chains and spurs are not reserved by the SCA
for knights to wear only.  If you'll recall, Midrealm squires often wear
silver chains, and I've seen some with spurs, too.  I'm glad you don't
see that in Atlantia, personally.

Of course, chains in heraldry is definitely reserved for the Chivalry.
