Ask a question

This late Victorian gold guard chain has a very interesting pattern to the links.

Pierced stars alternate with heavily ridged links, giving a richly textured appearance. A friend called it steampunk, and it does have a look reminiscent of complex machinery.

It is late 19th century, English, and handmade in nine-carat gold.

It sits beautifully when doubled, as the chain does not turn on itself, as can happen with more open links. This is not a common pattern, but it is a desirable one.


• Handmade in nine-carat yellow gold
• Approximately 64 1/2 inches (164cm) long, link is 4.5mm wide

I’d be very happy to send more information and images. Layaway available.
