Victorian French 18kt Yellow Gold Link Long Chain Necklace 62"
An absolutely fabulous gold watch chain from the Victorian (1880s) era! Extremely long in length, this wonderful French-made piece is comprised of elegant 18kt yellow gold links, which have a beautiful anchor-link style design. Oval links, encompassing a figure-eight motif, alternate with simple round loops, coming together to create a delicate yet weighty geometric flowing design. The chain does not have a fastening clasp, however, due to its extensive length, it can easily slip on overhead and be worn doubled or even tripled. At the center of the chain is a swivel watch clasp which allows one to attach a complementary pendant or locket if desired and the link that connects to the swivel clasp has several French hallmarks including an eagle's head, verifying its 18kt gold purity. This beautifully crafted chain necklace would be a wonderful addition to any jewelry collection.
Measurements: The entire length of the chain measures approximately 62" long and is approximately 1/8" wide. It has an overall weight of 37.1 grams.
Condition: The overall condition of the chain is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the gold links or to the swivel clasp, which is in good working condition.
