Story

The long chain necklace was an essential staple of the jewelry wardrobe of almost every Victorian lady. Although a suspended locket or pendant often accompanied the chain, the piece was typically ornate to be worn with no additional adornment. This particular example is crafted in 9k yellow gold with intricate belcher-type links. Lengthy at more than 4 feet, two decorative open lanterns of gold provide contrasting interest in the visual “texture” of the long chain. Finished with the characteristic dog clip or snap-gate clasp, this late 19th century chain is a versatile addition to any jewelry box.
