ABOUT:
This one has a sturdy hand feel at almost 10 grams, with alternating bar twist links and sections of small curb chain.

These Victorian antique watch chains are quite versatile to be worn in different ways. Shorter in length, they can be worn as a chocker or necklace with an extender. We often see these worn with two or more of them connected. It could also be fashioned with extenders to be worn as a bracelet. (Important - please check the measurements as we lovelies all come in wonderfully unique shapes and sizes : ) - and this is a shorter chain).

This would have been used in the past to hold a pocket watch. But now it makes for interesting texture for your neckstack with alternating bar and chain links, the large spring ring on one side and dog clip on the other.

Crafted in glowing and rich antique 18k yellow gold. French hallmarks on both clasps.

Additional chains & items shown in photos not included. Please note the measurements as I have small hands and it can be difficult to decipher scale from photos.

MEASUREMENTS:
It weighs 9.6g of solid 18k gold. Stretched end to end it's 15 1/4 inches. The bar chain links are 12mm in length with a 2mm gauge.

IMPORTANT CONDITION NOTES:

Lovely patina. The dog clip isn't springy. When you push it open it stays open and leaves a slight gap but I wore it around and never had any issues with it falling open because the large spring ring has enough sturdiness to stay in place while wearing.

Please note that all my pieces are pre-owned and in estate condition. They will have patina, surface wear, a few small nicks. These pieces may also have evidence of a sizing, some build up around the stones and / or inclusions seen under magnification, typical for antique pieces. I have mentioned any noticeable issues above and they are all still wearable and eager to be loved and accepted for many years to come, (the preservation of antique jewelry, even those with signs of their age and history, is important to me. : )
But - Please note due to age, this piece is not in mint condition. Pictures also serve as part of the description and condition report so please utilize the zoom feature which will magnify any wear significantly more than what is visible to the eye while wearing : )

I would be delighted if you'd follow me in my shop. Thanks for stopping by!
