We always try to source the finest and most beautiful pieces of antique jewellery, and this rare solid Gold Victorian Long guard chain does not disappoint!
Crafted from solid 9ct Gold throughout it measures an impressive 60 inches long so you can wear it in any numbers of ways, and features the prettiest intricate combination of links.
If you wear it doubled over it still hangs low down (past the decolletage!) with dramatic effect- drawing the gaze of many a secret admirer... or wrap it around your neck three-fold, as three equal chains or a graduated cascade of Gold!
It features the original antique Gold dog-clip which only adds to its versatility and the way the flat and rounded links catch the light is just magical. If you're looking for a treat you'll wear all year round this is the perfect "neck-mess" for all occasions!
ERA: Victorian (1837-1901)
MEASUREMENTS: The chain is 60" or 152cm long.
MATERIALS: 9ct Rosy Gold.
The antique dog-clip is marked "9CT" and one of the long links is also marked "9CT". As is common with much Victorian jewellery the majority of chain isn't hallmarked but has been tested as solid 9ct Gold throughout.
EXCELLENT: This antique Gold Victorian long guard chain is absolutely magnificent! In excellent condition throughout, this extra long chain is a very special piece of history and we just can't get enough of it! There's no damage or wear to speak of, just inch upon inch of glorious antique Gold goodness that shines with a rich rosy golden colour. Each link has been carefully polished to restore her natural splendour.
The antique dog-clip is also of solid construction and closes tightly, so no matter how you decide to wear this versatile necklace you'll be safe in the knowledge it's secure when worn. The colour of the dog-clip also matches the chain perfectly so we can be confident they are meant for each other and are a rare original pair.
