This long, beautiful, hand made, French 18 karat gold chain is circa 1890. It is one of my favorite links, as the design pairs so well with any locket , charm or pendant. The chain measures a long 47 inches X 4.76 mm across the fancy "x" centered link. It has a good weight of 25.3 grams. It has the original spring ring which is easily adapted to be a clasp if desired. The chain has a rich, original patina and is smooth and finely finished. It has a French guarantee stamp, or poincon, an eagles head, on the end ring.
This chain can be wrapped several times around the neck,or worn single, double....a myriad of choices. Completely original and in excellent condition. Would look superb joined with a heart, compass charm, watch or pendant. All are available on this site.
France, circa 1890
