Antique French 18k Gold Chain Necklace c. 1890

$ 6,800.00

Imagine unlocking a treasure chest that reveals a captivating story of enterprise and style—a story embodied by this beautiful chain from the 1890’s. These links transcend their origins, offering a design that feels surprisingly modern.

This wonderful, hand crafted chain was almost certainly part of a long guard watch chain that was likely originally twice as long. The chain has a clasp that is marked '14k', but this is just for the clasp, the chain itself tests as 18 karat gold and is marked with French marks on the center jump ring. This chain weighs 33 grams, and extends gracefully at 34.25 inches in length. The 12 long oval-shaped links, seemingly split and meticulously twisted, measure 23.6 x 6.9 x 1.42 mm exhibit the French jeweler's dedication to intricate detailing.

As you wear this link chain, consider the hands that crafted it over a century ago, weaving a tale of meticulous artistry. Embrace this unique blend of history and style, where each link tells a chapter of a story that transcends time.
