Luxury Design, Past & Present
Extremely fine antique 18K yellow gold long Georgian guard chain. This refined beautifully made guard chain is an authentic antique and of the period. The hand chased slide moves effortlessly along the smooth, sleek, sensuous and gracefully flowing chain portion which measures 51 1/2" & the expertly crafted hand terminal and bail measure an additional 1 1/2". The round bale section at the very bottom of the piece, which is probably a later addition, tests as 14K gold. The piece is sturdy & quite heavy for this type of jewelry weighing 34.01 grams & is in excellent condition. This lovely wearable necklace feels truly wonderful to the touch. All anyone needs to do is hold it in their hand or drape it around their neck to be transported to a world of relaxed sensual elegance.
