Story

The longchain or guard chain, worn since the Georgian era as a singleton or in multiples, across the shoulders or around the neck, has clear versatility.

Burnished with a silvery pewter-like color, this Edwardian example uses gun metal as the preferred material for the necklace. The chain is comprised of a series of three elongated links conjoined with one open work spiral “cage” tapered at the ends creating a piece which appeals visually to the eye as well as textural to the touch. A snap gate clasp or dog clip finishes the period necklace.

Date: Circa 1900.
