If you were a middle- or upper-class jewellery lover in the 19th century you probably owned at least one long chain. These can still be found in all carats of gold and in silver, too – as all you avid collectors know.
There are so many ways to style these versatile chains, and we see marvellous examples most days on Instagram.
This appealing gold example has a lovely reeded design impressed on the solid links.
The colour is typical of 15-carat gold. That is, it’s a soft but rich yellow.
Fifteen-carat gold was only made in England and its colonies, which included Australia.
This particular chain has English provenance, though I bought it in Sydney.
