Story

Chains…long, sexy and lovely…they seem to reside on every chic woman's agenda. Yet this one wins out for its elegance, age, unique style, sheer age and history.

Intricate ridges of rippling gold magically joined in to create pure elegance. Dating to circa 1820-30, this 18k gold chain is simply divine. Slinky and cool in the hand or on the neck, it imparts that wonderful sensation of age-old gold, now worn to a buttery patina.

The clasp is particularly fine as it is rendered in the image of a dolphin or snake head, its mouth agape. The release element of the clasp mimics the tongue of the animal. Atop the head, hand engraved scrolling and curlicue patterns, all in hollow repoussé construction, adorn the surface.

The links of the chain are arranged like a golden ladder with the center horizontally oriented, the sides vertical. In the center, one round link is polished smooth, the next with fine vertical, linear patterns.

Light and delicate in feel, true Georgian era chains were never heavy as gold was scarce and costly. Long - measuring over 33 inches long - it can be worn as is, or doubled to near choker length.
