An exquisite French-made mixed metals chain from the Edwardian (ca1910s) era! This beautiful, weighty piece features a pattern of 18kt rose gold chain that alternates with sections of gleaming platinum links to create a wonderful two-tone appeal. The unique design is comprised of twisted rings that interlock and create a flat, spine-like link that uniformly carries the entire length of the piece. The necklace fastens securely with a large, two-tone spring-ring clasp stamped with a French hallmark of Mercury's face. In addition to being worn as a necklace, this stunning chain could also be wrapped around the wearer's wrist three times and worn as a bracelet. This feminine yet bold piece offers wonderful versatility and would make a unique statement to any collection!
Measurements: The chain measures approximately 21" in total length and is a little less than 1/4" wide. The spring ring clasp has an interior diameter of approximately 1/4". The overall weight of the piece is 59.9 grams.
Condition: The overall condition of the chain is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the gold and platinum setting and the clasp is secure and in good working condition.
