I spent a good half hour the other day, and have been at it almost an hour this evening. And I've made almost no progress whatsoever. I have managed to untangle only about 2" of one end of the chain. Except for the fact it is my good jewelry, I am so tempted to just give it a good sharp tug! So frustrated right now.
Take it to a jewelry store! I had a really nice chain tangled up badly, and they were able to fix it for me.
