This Victorian Niello chain necklace is in great condition for its age. Each link is perfectly formed with no dings or scratches and the details are still prominent. These is some wear to the niello in keeping with age, most notably to the bolt ring and dog-clip but this is only to be expected from a well-loved piece of this age. The bolt ring works and keeps the chain securely in place but some pressure needs to be added to lock it properly. We have added a modern jump ring near one end to offer more securely so this piece can be worn with utmost confidence!
