Victorian Guard Chain

$1,000.00
About Details

Just in, and an instagram exclusive: a fifty-inch Victorian chain marked "9C" on the clasp - in England, this is the marking for 9 carat gold. The high copper content in 9k* gold gives it that lovely reddish color. The new "rose gold" produced today is harshly pink compared to this mellow yellow-rose. There's lots of drape and weight on this doubled-up chain, which was made at the end of the 19th century.

*We're American, so we say 9k.
