Rare Victorian 20" 14K Gold Book Chain Necklace, 49.2 grams
Quite outstanding 14K yellow gold 20" book chain necklace from the Victorian era (c. 1880s).
English in origin, it is handcrafted in vibrant yellow gold and has a wonderful motif applied with ornate detail and engraving. The design is comprised of interlocking panel links, each connected with smooth gold rings. The pattern gives lovely depth and texture to the design.
The chain is approx 5/8" wide and 20" long. It weighs 49.2 grams. It is unmarked, but has been professionally tested for 14K gold.
It closes with a spring ring and would look fabulous with a pendant or simply worn alone for a dazzling statement.
Gorgeous and rare 19th century book chain!
