Victorian 15kt Spectacular English Watch Chain- ON HOLD
A stunning fancy English watch chain from the Victorian (ca1880) era! This beautiful necklace is made of 15kt yellow gold (indicating English origin) and is comprised of wonderfully detailed, large textured links.

Alternating with the box links are large textured gold loops, which also bear a complimentary hand engraved design. The chain fastens at the back with two watch swivel clasps that link together.

When worn, the necklace has a very substantial, important appearance that would look wonderful worn by the modern day woman. It's a very Victorian piece that would make a marvelous addition to any jewelry collection!
