Long & Sexy - Beaded Long Guard Chain
The use of black materials in jewelry abounded from the mid to late 20th century. Initially it was all fueled by Queen Victoria's extended mourning period but often transformed into pure fashion. In this case an incredible in-the-round beaded long guard (and we mean long) chain is as alluring as it gets. Yes, it hangs down 37-1/2 inches including the dog clip end. So wrap this two or three times, knot it, hang a pendant or several fobs from it – and it all works. The beads gleam and glint but are not glass. We have tested these to the extent of not damaging the necklace and believe it to be bog oak as a hint of sweet woods was detected.
Fashioned in three dimensions, each row contains about seven to eight beads as it winds it way upward and downward until resulting in a tactile movable sculpture. Tips of 9k rose gold at the ends, "O" fittings and a rose gold gilded dog clip that springs inwardly.
Measurements: This hangs down 37-3/8 inches (95 cm) with the black beaded area and is 70 inches (178 cm) in total length by 5/6 of an inch (0.8 cm) in width.
Condition: Excellent and all original.
Date & Origin: Circa 1880 and is most likely English or French in origin.
Overall Scale: Long and medium
