Longer and later than most antique watch chains, this nine-carat rose gold example is 20 1/2 inches long and dates from about 1920.
Stamped 9ct on each of the long links, as was common with these later ones, it may have been made here in Australia, where I bought it.
Otherwise it’s English. Only the UK and its former colonies had and still have nine carat as a gold standard.
Antique rose gold is usually more appealing than modern. Jewellers used silver and other metals to soften the brashness of the reddish copper.
So wearable on its own, this could be the perfect foundation neck chain for one or many loved pendants and lockets. It’s sturdy, with a good weight of 30.8 grams, but doesn’t visually overpower.
Or wear it as part of your neck mess – the combinations are endless.
