This pretty antique Silver book-chain necklace is one of the most beautiful we've come across in a while! It's dainty and delicate links are a refreshing alternative to it's more common chunky counterparts.
(We see much heavier and more formal-looking Victorian book chains quite often but this one has a lightness of touch that's just lovely!)
The necklace is made from solid Sterling Silver throughout and comes with a 15mm antique Silver bolt ring clasp, which you can wear at the back or make a feature out if it worn at the front. It also looks fabulous with a small locket, pendant or charms attached so you can really make this necklace your own. We love it!
