I avoid the "material graph wormhole" as much as possible, usually choosing a simple and repeatable solution.  That's why I like the two-surface trick, and use it on many projects from jewelry to medical devices.  It's simple, yet very flexible.

Here's an example using "black chrome" underside and a lightly frosted glass on top, with no bump map.

Think of it as a back surfaced mirror.  Tweaking the glass qualities is the trick!

Did you model the curb chain?

That is absolutely beautiful.  Where might I find the information about the two surface trick?
