This is a wonderful example of an antique watch chain that’s ideally suited to be worn as a necklace.

It’s rare to find an antique watch chain this long. Reproduction examples abound.

It’s possible to identify them though – their colour is usually too yellow or too pink. And examination using magnification will show porosity between the loops of the knots, where polishing has not quite reached the deeper parts.

This English chain has an attractive double fetter and knot pattern and is in marvellous condition.

It’s fully handcrafted, as you would expect from a late Victorian beauty like this.


• Handmade in 18-carat yellow gold
