Victorian French 18kt Elongated Link Watch Chain 23"
A gorgeous French watch chain from the Victorian (ca1880) era! This wonderful piece is crafted in 18kt rosy yellow gold and is comprised of elongated flat links that connect together at a large spring ring clasp. Each link forms the shape of an elongated diamond with a delicate cutout at the center, and connect together by a short section of chain. The links are smoothly polished and catch the light beautifully, creating a unique eye-catching appeal. The piece fastens together with a simple spring ring clasp that attaches to large spring ring clasp (stamped with a French touchmark of an eagle head), allowing the piece to be worn alone or paired with a complimentary pendant or locket, if desired. A versatile and stunning piece, it would make a wonderful addition to any jewelry collection!
Measurements: The chain measures 23" long. Each link measures approximately 1" long, 1/4" wide, and 1/16" thick. The interior diameter of the large spring ring clasp measures slightly more than 1/2" thick. The overall pennyweight of the piece is 11.5dwt (17.9 grams).
Condition: The overall condition of the chain is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the gold setting. Both spring ring clasps are secure and in good working condition.
