Antique Victorian Rosy Yellow Gold Filled Ornate Book Chain Drop Necklace - Pocket Watch Chain #c959
This gorgeous Victorian book chain necklace has a beautiful, rosy yellow gold filled finish. It features large square links with ornate chased designs on the front side. The square links have fancy scalloped edges and they are three-dimensional, giving the necklace fantastic depth and dimension. The necklace has a large, thumbless bolt ring clasp in the front that holds a book chain drop. The drop can be used to hold a large locket or pendant and it is removable, allowing the necklace to be worn as a chain only. The piece may originally have been used as a Victorian lady's pendant or pocket watch holder. It's a stunning and versatile beauty!

The necklace measures about 18 inches long, 9mm wide and weighs 39.1 grams. The drop is approximately 1 3/8 inches long and 9mm wide. The necklace is unsigned, which is common for these old Victorian pieces.

This necklace is absolutely exquisite! It has a rich rosy color and looks amazing at the neckline. It can be used in myriad ways, making it an exceptionally versatile piece to add to your antique jewelry collection. The necklace is in excellent antique condition for its 100+ years of age. There is some minor variation to the size of the openings inside the boxes (links) that can be seen if you look directly through the chain from the side, but this doesn't show or detract at all when worn. There are also a couple of small areas of finish loss to the drop portion of the piece (photo #9), most likely because it was handled more than the rest of the necklace. There's nothing here that detracts from this breathtakingly beautiful necklace. It's a fantastic piece of history that you can wear and pass down to future generations.
