A great antique chain is hard to find. There is so many reasons to make this Portuguese chain an anchor in your jewelry collection – the screw-on dog clip (which opens for easy wrapping and addition of pendants!), the beautiful book-chain style links, the detailed hand clasp, the rich gold color, we could go on and on.
Handcrafted in Portugal in 19.2 karat yellow gold circa 1850-70s, this fine book chain is about 28 inches long, with a double chain, and 42 grams total weight. The screw-on dog clip and ample length allows for multiple ways to wear this stunning chain; doubled up as modeled, layered with the hand clasp on the front, wrapped around multiple times as a choker, or even around the wrist as a bracelet!
