Antique A.A. Greene & Co. Yellow Gold Filled Curb Watch Chain Necklace - 10K Diamond Starburst Slide and Clip - 48 Inches #d483

Regular price $149.00
This lovely watch chain necklace was created by A.A. Greene & Co. of Providence, RI, a jewelry company that was active circa 1915 through 1934. Chains of this style were also known as guard, lorgnette or muff chains and were used by ladies to hold pocket watches, lockets, glasses and other items. The chain is a curb link style with a yellow gold filled finish. It is a continuous chain with a dog style clip at the end. A lovely round, yellow gold, chased starburst slide with a diamond in the center joins the two chains together in the front. The chain is very long and can be easily doubled up at the neckline. It's a wonderful and versatile piece!

The chain measures about 48 inches long, 2mm wide and weighs 11.4 grams. It is signed "A.A.G. CO." for A.A. Greene & Co. on the end of the dog clip. The diamond is approximately 1mm in size. It tested definitively in the diamond range on a Presidium gem tester. The slide acid tested for me as 10K gold.

This beautiful chain is the perfect piece to hold an antique locket, pendant or pendant watch. It can be worn as a long chain or doubled up as a two-strand necklace. With its lovely diamond slide, it's certain to add great beauty to whatever you decide to pair with it. The chain is in very good antique condition with some finish wear and patina from previous use. The slide does not hold on the chain, but will sit at the end of the chain as an gorgeous accent to whatever is attached to the clip. It could also be added to another chain with a slightly wider width if desired.

SIGNED: A.A.G. CO. FOR A.A. GREENE & CO. ON THE END OF THE DOG CLIP
