Victorian Gold-Filled Watch Chain + Faceted Crystal Heart Pendant Necklace 29.25"
A gorgeous and romantic pendant necklace from the Victorian (ca1880) era! This lovely piece is comprised of two different but wonderfully complimentary rose gold-filled watch chains that fasten together to form the unique chain of the necklace. Hanging from a swivel watch clasp extension at the center is a relatively large faceted crystal formed into the shape of a romantic heart. The pendant dangles from a simple bail riveted into the top, allowing light to pass through both sides, beautifully reflecting the light with every turn. One of the chains is longer than the other, and comprised of simple curb links that fasten to the shorter chain with a swivel watch clasp. The shorter chain features long, double-sided bar links which alternate with sections of chain. The elongated links display a fabulous curled ribbon wirework design that is enclosed within the center, providing wonderful eye-catching texture to the piece. Thanks to the generous length of the chains, the necklace can easily slip on and off overhead, and can be doubled up with the help of the watch clasp (stamped "LB&CO") for a fabulous layered look. Whether worn alone or with additional pendants, this beautiful necklace has endless versatility and makes a fantastic statement piece when worn!
Measurements: The necklace measures approximately 29.25" in total length. The heart pendant and clasp extension hang about 2 5/8" long. The pendant itself measures approximately 1 1/4" tall, 1 1/8" wide, and is about 1/2" thick.
