A dramatic, decorative 18k gold barrel clasp, studded with turquoise and embellished with cannetille metal work, is the star of this gorgeous antique married chain. The clasp still retains its beautifully made and engraved original connecting links at each end. The clasp finishes a length of hand made 14k yellow gold chain. The 19th century chain is composed of engraved double rolo links, it looks substantial yet feels light and airy. This is a clever marriage of antique pieces, even more wonderful than the sum of its parts. The ingredients date from circa 1860-1880.

From the Married Chains Collection by Ancient Influences. All of the ingredients in this necklace are unique re-purposed vintage and antique components. I love using vintage findings, it's always thrilling to discover just the right split ring or hook for a piece. Small imperfections are to be expected in vintage and antique and are considered part of their charm.

Details.....The chain is 18" long. The links measure 3.5mm wide. The clasp measures 14.7mm by 8.5mm. The necklace weighs 12 grams.
