It's rare to find a Victorian guard chain that hasn't been chopped up into shorter lengths, but here's a nice one. Made in 9k gold around 1890, it was originally used to loop through a hand-warming fur muff to "guard" it from being lost. The 64" long boxy chain is a warm rose gold color you just can't reproduce in the modern era.
