Oh my goodness!! Possibly the best antique Victorian long guard chain ever? Around 100 inches long and weighs over 100 grams too! C1890.

This amazing chain is in a traditional late 19th century twin ribbed belcher link. A very sturdy chain which will wrap around the neck maybe up to 5 times? Many long guard chains were intended to carry a ladies watch or locket etc. In particular this one was specifically designed to attach a fur muff for winter evenings, maybe a skating party or a late night terrace rendezvous? As you will see, there are two plain silver soldered jump rings for the purpose. No clasp is fitted as was mostly the case for this type of ladies chain. The photos show the acid test for sterling silver ( bright red result for 925), the measurement of 12 1/2 inches (×8 !!) and the weight of 104 grams on the scales.

What a fantastic antique heirloom for your daughter! Make sure you wear it lots first though, as owning such a versatile necklace could make it your first choice every time!

Thanks for looking, hope you love it!
