Antique Victorian Carnelian Silver Long Guard Chain Necklace

A pocket watch was the iPhone of the Victorian era, only much more elegant and attractive. You didn’t need a case for your watch, what you needed was a chain. The fantastic chain would have been used to hold a watch. I imagine it did a fine job, indeed! 

Hand crafted in silver, this wonderful chain is set with 25 polished natural carnelian gems. The stones are graduated, with the largest ones a the clasp end, which would have been worn in front, and the smallest in the center of the chain. The smallest stones measure 7 mm and the largest are about 11 mm. The chain, often called a ‘long guard’ is 56 inches long and weighs 22.4 grams. 

You don’t need to be a pocket watch wearer to find a myriad of uses for this fabulous chain. Wear it looped once, twice or more, or leave it long to make quite a statement. Even looks great as a bracelet!
