Victorian Sterling Gilt Fancy Link Chain Necklace 28"
A beautiful sterling gilt chain necklace from the Victorian (ca1880) era! This unique handmade piece is comprised of fancy gilded links, which have a wonderful patterned surface. The etched detail provides subtle texture and adds depth to the design. At center is a large spring ring clasp, which makes it possible to hang a complimentary locket or pendant if desired. The length of the chain allows it to slip easily on and off overhead, and it drapes beautifully when worn. This stylish and versatile piece would look beautiful worn on its own, or it could be paired with other chunky link chains for a fashionable layered look. Despite its substantial appearance, the necklace is quite lightweight and comfortable to wear. A simply gorgeous piece, it would make a special everyday addition to any collection!
Measurements: The total length of the chain measures 28" long, and measures 1/4" wide and thick.
Condition: The overall condition of the chain is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the sterling gilt links, and the spring ring clasp fastens securely and is in good working condition.
