This charming piece is Victorian in era and features a thick chased bookchain with an oval center presentation set with three sapphire blue glass stones. Black enamel accent to the raised chain links (three on each side) and the center. The necklace is unmarked. It is app. 15.5inches overall with the links app. 1/2inch wide. The center oval is app. 1.75inches x 1.25inches and domes slightly outwards. The facetted stones are app. 7mmx5mm and in raised mounts.
This has gilt wear and some black enamel loss. The one loop near the clasp has a small soldier repair where it must have cracked at one time - last photo. Under a loupe there is a little wear to the glass pieces with one glass having a flake off the corner. The clasp works. BG121
