This chain has such a tactile feel to it and can so easily be worn long, doubled or even tripled over, and no matter how you choose to wear it, there is no doubt that it will always be admired and looked upon with awe. Bearing hallmarks for Portugal, if this piece could talk it would be amazing to consider who owned and wore such a magnificent piece of high end jewellery all those years ago. Antique guard chains are around today and make such a versatile style, however there will be little to compare this to it regards to thickness, link design, length and high carat of gold which is practically unheard of with antique guard chains. A truly spectacular and unique piece. Stock# ES7725 Circa: 1880 $18,250
