Victorian 15kt Carved Onyx Link Chain Necklace
An impressive onyx chain necklace from the Victorian (ca1880) era! This stately necklace has a beautiful and bold design and is a wonderful example of mourning jewelry. The chain consists of a strand of large, hand-carved onyx links, which are connected by simple 15kt rose gold rings. At the center of the necklace is a large gold spring ring clasp, making it possible to attach a complimentary locket or pendant if desired. The rich black onyx pairs perfectly with the rose gold findings for a very striking and dramatic look. A strong Victorian piece, it would make a fabulous addition to any collection!
Measurements: The onyx chain measures approximately 21" long. Each carved onyx link is 1" long and 3/8" wide and thick.
Condition: The overall condition of the necklace is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the gold findings or to the onyx links. The spring ring clasp is secure and in good working condition.
