This 56" heavy 18ct Gold antique snake chain is the most incredible piece we have had the pleasure of seeing here at Lillicoco. A fine work of craftsmanship, this late Georgian to early Victorian chain is 52.4g of solid 18ct Gold and offered in mint condition.
This antique chain is the epitome of rare luxury. The links are a unique rectangular shape, with the characterful fluidity and movement of snake links, and they are joined together by an immaculately presented Enamel slider. But that's not all. This chain also has a rare screw clasp, allowing you to add your favourite pendant!

EXCELLENT: This 56" heavy 18ct Gold antique snake chain is worth every penny. An investment heirloom piece, it is incredibly rare to find an antique jewel of her age, but also in pristine condition. All of the links are secure, the enamel is perfection and the screw clasp is in perfect working order. The slider mechanism does work well, but you can only move one chain link at a time, so please treat her with the utmost care. This chain is fit for royalty, and would be the ultimate addition to an antique collection.
