Ask a question

Old English watch chains make wonderful necklaces, as countless antique jewellery lovers show so inventively on Instagram.

This rich nine-carat rose gold example from about 1900 has elaborate pierced and stamped long links alternating with faceted belcher links.

It’s a great length too at 40cm, or 15 3/4 inches.

I have had this link and its variations many times over the years. It was used in silver watch chains as well – there is one for sale now in my online store.

The gold medallion is hallmarked for 1928 – a time when watch chains were becoming somewhat obsolete, given the growing popularity of wristwatches.

Though it’s a later addition to the chain, they do work very well together. The rose gold in both has the same rich hue.
