Victorian 9k Rose Gold Watch Chain, Elongated Bar & Scalloped Links 30.5 g

A lovely and elegant antique Victorian solid 9k rose gold watch chain, adapted as a 16-inch necklace chain and fitted with a T-bar, extension links, and double dog clips at the ends. The oval links feature crisp scalloped edges with sides chased in a pattern of stars. Interspaced between are four pairs of interconnected bar links, which provide a refreshing sense of linearity and modernity against the pretty scalloped ovals. The extra extension links hanging from the center can be used to repair or extend the chain. One can also attach a jump ring or bolt clasp to the end for pendants and charms.
