We love this unique antique Niello chain! Oozing with Victorian eccentricity, this Gothic piece is a great gift for a loved one who has a penchant for authentic Victorian antiques!
A technique that has been used since the ancient Romans, Niello jewellery was incredibly popular during the Medieval and Renaissance period. It is no secret that the Victorians were fascinated by these time periods, which led to a further surge during the Victorian period. Plus, the striking black hue against Silver or Gold, created a statement dramatic piece that could be coveted all day long!
This gorgeous chain is a prime example of this, featuring a large decorative Niello bolt ring and Niello dog clip, this piece epitomises eclectic Victorian glamour. Another gorgeous addition is the Rose Gold gilt on some of the links, creating plenty of contrast and dynamism to this statement chain!

VERY GOOD: This antique Niello Chain is in great condition throughout. The Niello is clear on the large bolt ring, as well as on the dog clip and the links. Yet, there is some evidence of wear throughout the links as the Rose Gold gilt is fainter on a few, although this does not detract from the overall brilliance of the chain overall!
