This charming , late Victorian Guard chain is marked for 9 carat gold with garnet beads.
It measures 54” (136cms) long. The chain is 2mms wide and the garnet beads are 4mms across. The chain weighs 18.3 grams.
The lovely gold belcher chain has deep red garnet beads at intervals. It closes with a large ring clasp marked ‘9ct’ for 9 carat gold. Not far from this is a little tab also marked ‘9ct’.
The garnet beads have natural inclusions and under a loupe, a little surface wear on some of them. However this chain is in really lovely condition for its venerable age.
This versatile piece can be worn long or doubled. Either way it looks fabulous. It will arrive in a gift box.
