This 18-carat gold collar is composed of joined herringbone-shaped links, creating a classic, elegant necklace. 

It’s a vintage Italian piece, made by Chiampesan of Vicenza, and has an import mark for London 1986. It’s possible it was created earlier, though I don’t think it matters. The design is timeless. 

If you scroll through the pictures you can see it being worn with a pair of Retro earrings. 

It would look wonderful alongside certain Victorian jewels too, as well as more contemporary ones.
