Date: 1880-1900s, late Victorian era
Materials: solid 12k rose gold (tested in three locations with electronic gold tester & nitric-muriatic acid)
Weight: 54.8 grams
Length: 40.5 cm (16 inches)
Max. width of chain: 10.5 mm
Dimension of long reticulated links: 33 x 9.5 mm
Condition: Overall in great antique condition. This is a heavy, sturdily constructed chain with its links in good order. One of the circular ribbed links has been scored down previously to test for solid gold. One link is missing a small granulation bead. There’s a slight wave / uneveness to one of the long reticulated links at the very edge (cosmetic and not of structural concern). The large bolt clasp has a small dent to its inner edge. There is general age-related surface wear to the gold.
