Ask a question

Here’s a deceptively simple antique 15-carat gold belcher link guard chain from about 1900.

What lifts it out of the ordinary, apart from the carat standard seen here only being found in antique jewellery, is the original matte finish of the gold.

It adds a subtle but crucial mark of quality and original condition.

Despite its fine appearance it’s sturdy as it has barely been worn, so the links have not thinned at all. It weighs 18.8 grams.


• Handmade in 15-carat yellow gold
• Approximately 53 inches (134cm) long, link is 2.3mm wide
• Weight is 18.8 grams
• In excellent antique condition – there is a replacement nine-carat gold dog clip
• Will come in a Karen Deakin gift box (my antique boxes are not for sale)
• Note: some of the other antique jewellery is for sale separately (some has sold) – please get in touch if you’d like information about any of it

Please examine the photographs carefully – they form part of the description.

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