Here is a magnificent antique chain that was made in the mid-Victorian period of the 1870's that was so exquisitely made and then finished off with a gorgeous clasp set with turquoise.
Made in 15ct yellow gold, this necklace measures 135cm in length and can be worn as one long chain or wrapped around and worn double. The entire chain was made by hand and not by a mass production technique of a machine as would be the case today so it is incredible to think how much time and effort went into making this necklace and even more so when you consider that it is an astonishing 135cm long.
No matter how it is worn, doubled over or its full length, displaying the clasp will make this elegant piece of Victorian jewellery stand out even more. Set with 6 pieces of turquoise which really look so lovely set against the yellow gold, the clasp is made even all the more special by being beautifully hand engraved.
There is no doubt that this is a truly magnificent and incredibly elegant Victorian era necklace and one that is just breathtaking in its design.
