This enchanting antique sliding watch-chain is the absolutely epitome of Victorian elegance.
The piece boasts a lustrous 12 karat yellow-gold plating and an exceptional design.
"Slide" pieces were a favorite among Victorian jewelry makers, and this piece is a really fantastic example.
It has been professionally tested to ensure the purity of the gold finish.
The chain measures 48 inches long but is given a fair degree of adjustability by the gem-studded slide.
Both sides of the chain pass through the sides of the diamond-shaped slide.
The slide moves very freely up and down the chain.
It boasts a small but masterfully hand-hammered design in the center which is accented by an inset seed pearl and pink gemstone.
The chain joins with a classic watch clasp.
The clasp exhibits a die-stamped mark reading "EAC&Co."
The piece shows some light oxidization throughout, though it remains in outstanding antique condition overall.
Antique enthusiasts will agree that this chain is a must-have collector's piece.
