The Victorian women loved their long chains and often wore a few at the same time. The next time you are visiting a museum, take a look at the jewelry in some of the paintings and you will notice the chains as well as other pieces which may begin to look familiar. I love to find the similarities in pieces I own and ones I see in books and paintings!
This 14kt link chain is unusual not only for the length (28 inches) but also for the the lovely and delicate double infinity link element. However, you don't have to worry that this is too delicate to wear; after all it has withstood at least 100 years! There is no clasp but it is long enough to triple - so in essence you'll have 2 necklaces in one. A wonderful classic piece for your collection to wear alone, with other chains or to hang a pendant or locket. Needless to say, I love this chain for its versatility as well as the design.
Measurements: 28" long; each link is 5/8" long by 1/4" wide
