You can have access to the best, most expensive fashions and jewels, makeup and hair care, all of it, and still not look as put together as someone sporting clean skin and vintage store finds. The truth is that fashion isn’t in the things, it’s in the person. Some people just know how to wear it best. Still, having the perfect accessories can help you get a step closer. Go for things that you can’t wear wrong, like this chain, loop it once, twice or thrice, hang a bauble off of it, or don’t, wear it down the back or in the front, any way you wear it will be the right way and put you in the camp of the well-turned-out!

This fantastic French chain was fully hand crafted in about 1890. It is a 57 inch length of velvet soft links made up of fancy double circular rings and soft wide links interspersed with 9 decorative Fleur-de-lis links, giving it a decidedly French flair. This chain was originally made as a woman’s watch chain or ‘long guard’ and like a typical long guard, it doesn’t have an opening clasp, rather the clasp is there to hold a watch. I can have my jeweler change this upon request, but if you’re planning to wear it with a bauble or watch, it does look more polished this way. The chain weighs 40.4 grams, and is marked with French hallmarks, the Boar’s Head and makers mark.
