This fabulous lorgnette chain is all original and in superb condition. It is comprised of alternating links of 16 collar mounted faceted semi precious gem stones and 16 patterned links containing graceful curved swirls with well defined accent lines and minute dots.

Disconnected from the watch latch and stretched straight it would be an approx. 65" of chain with the 13" of chain that fit across the back of the neck being without decoration (see photo # 4 right insert). Attached to the latch it has a 33" neck opening which was perfect for a lorgnette in days of old. Today you can insert that 13" into the latch, put this area at the back of your neck and make a double strand necklace (see photo # 4 left insert) creating a 33" double chain with a 16 1/2" neck opening. It will even become a three or four strand chain. The gold is in excellent plus condition with no cracks, holes, rips, dents, scratches, abrasions or repairs. The watch latch is in smooth working order with excellent spring closure. The oval gem stones all appear to be the originals without nasty chips or cracks and are secure in their collars. The stones are a variety of natural semi precious colored gems, no synthetics or paste.

The only gold purity mark is in the interior of the latch and reads 14K. Rich has acid tested other areas and will guarantee a minimum of 14Kt. throughout. The oval gens in their collars are approx. 5/16" x 3/16" and the swirl link without it's end connector rings is 1/2" x 1/4". The chain measurements are previously stated in the second paragraph of the listing.
