This is an example of the extraordinary workmanship of the Regency jewellers, creating a dramatic chain which is amazingly light. The chain consists of fine decorative links twisting in the style of a rope and terminating in a beautiful clasp of gold with the finest three-dimensional stylized flowers framing four cabochon turquoises (these have some variation in colour). The clip opens with a spring mechanism and closes again securely. The overall condition of the piece is excellent for age and it tests for 14-15 carat gold. Please see all the images to fully appreciate the intricacy of the work in this piece – it was featured on a page of exquisite Regency jewellery in my book, “How the Watch was Worn, A Fashion for 500 Years” and on a gown. This chain would satisfy the demands of the most discerning of collectors and would be stunning to wear. Total length 40.5 ins (102.9cm). Weight 28 grams. Air Mail Post with tracking to the USA would be $18.00 USD – with no tracking is cheaper. This item is covered by own insurance policy. For shipping cost to other countries, please contact us.
