An antique Victorian watch chain is paired with an engraved square gold filled locket from the same era. The gold rope chain has an over sized smooth spring ring closure and a double clasp closure at the other end for added safety. The locket would most likely have been part of a chatelaine judging by the two different chain types used. The rope and curbed chains are joined by a center circle. The circle would have been attached to a pin from which other useful, sentimental or decorative objects, such as thimbles, small scissors, or a change purse, would have hung. The locket and its chain terminate with a toggle bar which joins the two pieces together through the over sized spring ring. I paired these two pieces because I thought it gave a modern feel to two wonderful antique pieces that might not have a continued life in fashion otherwise! It is in beautiful condition.

The engraved square locket is marked "CQ &R" inside and tests as 6-7 karat, although it is not marked, so it is gold filled. The locket itself measures 1.8 cm square and is attached to a 10 karat yellow gold rope chain that measures 8 cm. long. The locket weighs 8.0 grams.

The gold rope is stamped "14K" on the soldered jump ring and tested 14 karat yellow gold. It is 51 cm (20 inches) long and 3 mm thick. It weighs 14.4 grams.
