Circa 1870, a fine example of a Victorian sterling silver guard chain. Nice and long at 62" the chain is a curb link style terminating in a large round swivel bolt ring that is attached to the chain with a seed pearl embellished triple loop. A charming design detail and a sign of quality.
It's a very tactile piece - add a locket or not, it has interest whether worn long, doubled or tripled. During the Georgian and Victorian eras these versatile chains were one of several jewels worn at the same time and were used to attach, and keep close at hand, all manner of things.
The chain measures 4mm wide a full 62" long and is heavy weighing 50 grams. There are no hallmarks and it tests 925 sterling silver throughout.
Condition is excellent with no issues. Please note the ball locket and pocket watch is available separately and not included in the purchase.
