Victorian 56" Guard Chain

$2,400

This covetable Victorian guard chain is 9k yellow gold and measures 56" in length. Guard chains - also known as muff or fob chains - often held small tool, fobs, lockets, or were looped through muffs hence the alternative names. Many (dare I say most?) Victorian guard chains have been cut up to make shorter necklaces, it's rare to find one intact at such a fantastic length.
