Victorian Belcher & Bar Link Guard Chain
This wonderful Victorian guard chain is made in 9k gold and measures an impressive 60" in length. Guard chains (also known as muff or fob chains) were worn by ladies and gentlemen alike in the 19th century, these useful pieces often held small tools, fobs, lockets, you get the idea. 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 an incredible length.
