Georgian Long 18kt Textured Link Chain with Clasp 59"
A wonderful gold chain from the Georgian era! This beautiful handmade piece is crafted in 18kt yellow gold and has a lovely and simple design. The chain is comprised of oval links that latch through each other to form a long, seamless strand. Each link has a textured surface that lends a coiled appearance to the design. At the center of the chain is a large watch swivel clasp, perfect for doubling the chain or hanging a complimentary locket or pendant if desired. A classic and versatile piece, it would make a wonderful addition to any antique collection!
Measurements: The chain measures 59" long and is approximately 3/16" wide. The watch swivel clasp hangs 7/8" long at the center.
Condition: The overall condition of the chain is very good. The watch swivel clasp is intact and in good working condition. A few of the links have some signs of light surface wear, which is normal for Georgian era jewelry due to its age. Two oval links in the strand appear to have been replaced by smooth rings of the same size and shape at a later date. One of the original links has a small break in the side, which is minor and not noticeable when worn. There is some subtle color variation present throughout the necklace due to a natural patina on the surface of the gold, which is normal for antique jewelry and adds character and depth.
