Victorian Sterling Roman Coin Chain Necklace 55"
A wonderful flowing sterling chain necklace from the Victorian (ca1880) era! This long chain is particularly long in length and comprised of 10 small Roman coin links that alternate with sections of sterling silver chain. Each Roman coin is two-sided and wonderfully detailed, with alternating designs. One side of each coin shows a profile of either a woman or man's face and the opposite side depicts either a branch with leaves or a symbol comprised of a bow an arrow that incorporates a crescent moon as the bow. The chain links that connect the piece are oval shaped and decorated with a textured outer surface, adding beautiful detail to the design. At the center of the piece is a sterling spring ring clasp, allowing it to be doubled or worn with a complimentary silver pendant or coin if desired. An incredible necklace with a wonderful look, this beautiful chain would make a very special addition to any collection!
Measurements: The overall length of the chain measures 55". Each coin has a diameter of approximately 3/8".
Condition: The overall condition of the necklace is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the sterling chain and the spring ring clasp is in good working condition.
