A superb antique 9ct gold 56” guard chain necklace. This fine example has been well crafted using very substantial links and fitted with a dog clip to assist when wearing in a double strand. The links are a nice traditional oval belcher which have been diamond cut to give the necklace a subtle glint as the light reflects onto it. This gorgeous necklace will bring the spirit of traditional sophistication to the right outfit when worn at an opera length of 28” as daywear of eveningwear. A part of our antique gold chain collection.

Very Good. This antique 9ct gold 56” guard chain necklace is presented in very good condition. The links are solid and the dog clip is excellent order. The links show some minor wear from being worn over the years which is very usual, although they are still very thick with no concerns at all. Two links have a small kinks, again these don’t cause any concern. Overall, a nicely made, heavy necklace with many years of enjoyment ahead of it.
