A gorgeous Victorian c.1870-1880 European long guard chain with intricate pierced links, each engraved with foliate detailing resembling leaves. The chain measures 57" in total length, with each individual link measuring 8mm x 4mm. The links are fine and delicately thin, and does not feel heavy when worn.

It can be worn doubled, tripled, or even wrapped up as a bracelet - a truly versatile piece at great value.
