This is simply the finest antique long chain I have offered for sale and it comes from my personal collection. It is French, circa 1890 and is designed with intricate quatrefoil links each separated by five oval links.

This chain is completely hand made, in excellent condition and retains the original, rich patina. It terminates with a spring ring that can hold a locket or pendant of choice. The spring ring can be adjusted to be used simply as a clasp.

This chain is a very long 61 inches long x 3/8 ths inches across the quatrefoil link, and can be tripled, doubled or worn long if desired. It has French guarantee stamps on the end rings, as well as maker's marks. The mark, a horse's head, denotes items made outside of Paris after 1838. The design, proportions and superior craftsmanship place this chain in a league of its own.

It weighs a significant 61 grams or 2.17 ounces of 18 karat gold. Elegant and forever beautiful...

France , circa 1890
