Gorgeous striped niello oblong twist fancy link chain – every other link retains traces of rose gold plate – original niello striped swivel pocket watch clasp – large spring clasp is of the same period – but not niello (black and silver striped) – would make a unique statement necklace – measures 16 1/2″ long x 3/16″ wide – marked only 800 – weighs a nice 12.9 grams. I will do my best to describe each item as accurately as possible and to the best of my knowledge. That being said, please note that my items are vintage, often unique and unless otherwise noted not in new/mint condition. Light wear consistent with age and use must be expected.

1 1/8 (excluding bail). Tests for 800 silver. Yes, see photo No mark. A pattern that really pops. Even in the Victorian era, rose gold and niello were a coveted combination. But combined with an olive branch, and a swirling stripe pattern, this locket is in a category all its own. The rose gold plating on the tiny leaves stands in bold contrast against the dark matte finish of the niello and bright silver. The classic size and silhouette of this locket makes the detail of the piece even more impressive and is still a fashion-forward statement even today. Bright patina with minimal surface wear to the gold setting. Fresh sheen, light surface wear, and no chipping or thinning to the niello or rose gold details. The original frame holds your photo tightly in place without a glass or plastic insert. Closes firmly with a satisfying snap. Niello designs are […]
