Antique Albertina Chain Necklace | Victorian Chain | Etruscan Sterling Silver Orb, Twisted Rope Chain - 20 Inch Antique Chain Necklace Chain


An elegantly draping, double strand, sterling silver Victorian Twisted Rope chain capped with silver ball beads; resurrected from an antique Albertina chain and given new life as a necklace. The central focal orb is heavily textured in the Victorian Etruscan Revival manner and the pliable chains fall beautifully.

+ All the details

There are no stamps, the chains and beads are testing as sterling silver and are guaranteed to be such.

The necklace chain portion is also antique and has a ring clasp with a lip closure rather than the newer nib clasp.

Sizes: overall length is 20 inches or 51 cm. The silver focal ball is 11mm diameter. The necklace is shown on a life size torso in image 3.

Condition of antique parts - excellent. The clasp is working perfectly and the rope chains are all intact.

Janne's Notes:
I am always fascinated by these beautiful Victorian chains and this rescued piece makes a unique and elegant necklace.
