"Knitted" Victorian 18K Gold Chain Necklace

$ 11,500
  • Description
    This 18K gold "knitted" chain was created circa the 1860s-1880s, in the Victorian period. The broad, oval-bodied chain is formed of fish scale links with knitted edges accented by gold spherules. With extraordinary flexibility and volume, this rare handmade chain, suitable to wear by itself or suspending a pendant, reflects the highly refined workmanship and lost practices of a perfectionist jewelry artisan, combined with the Victorian embrace of clean machine lines.
