Wonderful movement and shimmering glow to this antique solid gold chain / necklace. The top is a box chain with connected little oval fins or paddle shaped pieces that move with the chain to catch the light and shine.

The clasp on this one is lovely - they engraved it to match the links of the box chain - they certainly don't make 'em like they used to! It also has a unique safety clasp at the back with independent spring ring to double secure the chain while wearing.

French hallmark for 18k on the loop of the safety chain. Antique boxes / items in displays in photos are not included.

It weighs a sturdy 18.6g. Stretched end to end it's 17 3/4 inches. The box chain gauge is 1.8mm thick and it measures 7.7mm from the top of the box chain to the bottom of the little oval fins while wearing.


Please note that all my pieces are pre-owned and in estate condition. Beautiful rich patina that has warmed the 18k gold - it has a beautiful glow. Some signs of it being worn from age, where there is a very slight / gradual curve, or a ripple here or there but still very stable. Some surface wear but this is only seen if you study it up close due to the mirrored finish. To the eye and while wearing it as an amazing color and shine, like I said it truly glows and the 18 plus grams of solid 18k gold make it a special piece indeed. Sturdy, wearable and interesting piece in the solid gold version. There are no dark or colored spots to the gold, it was just difficult to photograph because it is so shiny and mirrored that it reflects its surroundings. Impactful worn alone but also layers well with other pieces.

My disclaimer with all my pieces - Please note due to age, this piece is not in mint condition.

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