Unit price

Tax included.

A fabulous antique sterling silver long-guard chain necklace. With its graceful round links that are D-shaped this style of guard chain is known as a Belcher chain and they were an essential bit of Victorian kit!

The chain is elegantly proportioned and lovely quality with solid strong links. It is a continuous necklace (it doesn't open, it slips over the head) and it measures a tad under 40" (100cm) in total length. With care you can wear it doubled if you wanted to although it may be a tight fit getting it over the head. The chain terminates in an all important sterling silver dog-clip.

A beautiful and very elegant antique guard chain, it has interest whether worn long or doubled, add a locket or a pendant or not! Very fashionable during the Georgian and Victorian eras these versatile and decorative chains were one of several jewels worn at the same time. They were used to attach, and keep close at hand, all manner of things like muffs, pocket watches, lorgnettes and portrait miniatures of loved ones.

MATERIALS: 925 sterling silver

MEASUREMENTS: measures 20-3/8" (52cm) down each side, the links are 3mm in diameter, the clip measures 20x6mm

DATE: Victorian, circa 1880

WEIGHT: 21.7 grams

CONDITION: in beautiful antique condition with light surface wear as you might expect, the links kink free and the chain is free flowing, the clip is in perfect order. Please note the pendant shown is not included.
