Description


This exceptional Victorian longuard/lorgnette chain has been handcrafted in 18 ct yellow gold.


The four stranded, herringbone chains are secured at either end with banded, chased decorated, rounded terminals.


The impressive chased decorated 18ct yellow gold T-bar to one end of this impressive example of Victorian craftsmanship is ornamented with eight cabochon turquoises and four Dutch cut diamonds to the feature, shaped box design to the centre.


The same terminal is also fitted with a versatile French hook, which may be used as a button hook if the T-bar is to be displayed.


The opposite end of this Victorian multi-chain longuard/lorgnette chain is fitted with a conventional swivel link clasp from which lorgnettes may be hung.


The original rectangular box-style slider which girdles the four chains, is embellished with eight cabochon turquoises and four Dutch cut diamonds, in addition to textured, chased decoration.


This exceptional 1880's chain is supplied with an independent diamond grading report card and has been independently tested using state of the art technology (Niton XL2 Analyzer) and verified as 18ct gold.


Condition


This original 18ct yellow gold lorgnette chain is exceptional quality, set with very high colour graded old cut diamonds.

The chain and fitments are a very good gauge of gold.

The chains are in excellent condition. There are some very minor losses to the surface of the T-bar, but these are only visible under a 20x magnifying glass; in no way do they detract from the overall aesthetic appearance of this exceptional item.


Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this item.
