A truly wonderful antique belcher chain from c.1850. This fantastic piece is an impressive 35” in length, making it the perfect layering piece that can either be worn at full length or wrapped around your neck twice for a stacked look, we have even managed to wrap it around our wrist five times to make a chunky bracelet. However, the true highlight of the chain has to be the clasp, which is made with a pale faceted amethyst set into a gold bezel with a secret cut out section beneath the stone that the box snap clasp smoothly slides into. The only wear to note are two small chips to the side of the amethyst and a few very small lead repairs to the chain, not noticeable unless you carefully inspect the piece. Overall this is a wonderful piece and one that is sure to become the highlight of any jewellery box.
