Victorian Gold Filled Mixed Metals Etruscan Book Chain 21.5"
A fabulous Etruscan book chain from the Victorian (ca1880) era! This beautiful gold filled necklace has a mixed metals design and is comprised of wonderfully detailed Etruscan links. Each link has an elongated ellipse shape and is decorated with a lovely Etruscan wirework on the front surface. In the center of each link is a raised rose gold colored ball with a multi-faceted surface, adding an attractive 2-tone look to the design. Alternating in between the Etruscan links are large open oval rings, which also have the same complimentary rose gold hue. The book chain fastens together with a large spring clasp, making it easy to hang a complimentary locket or pendant if desired. This wonderful piece would look stunning worn by itself or paired with a locket or pendant. It's a very special necklace that would make a marvelous addition to any jewelry collection!
Measurements: The necklace measures 21.5" long. Each individual Etruscan link measures approximately 1 1/4" long, 3/8" wide and 1/4" thick.
Condition: The overall condition of the chain necklace is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the gold filled links or to the Etruscan wirework design and the spring clasp is in good working condition.
