Victorian, 1830s to 1900s
Lovely antique Victorian slide chain necklace features an elongated octagon slide adorned with an Opal cabochon with a single tiny button Pearl at each side. The Pearls are natural as no pearls were cultivated at the time when this slide chain was made. Gold has a rose-y hue, very rich.
Overall approximate measurements for the slide are 1/4" long by 1/8" wide and 3/16" thick at the center. Slide is 10k Gold, unmarked and carefully tested.
Chain is 48" long not including the latch. It is a beautiful and strong flat oval link chain with excellent weight. Drapes beautifully. Chain is gold filled with no dents or kinks.
Overall approximate weight is 9.4 grams.
Excellent condition with very minor signs of wear for a necklace that is over 100 years old. The slide stops on the chain, which is often not the case.
Estimated to date from the 1890's.

We measure bracelets based on their wearable length, not the actual length. We do this because chunky bracelets will have a smaller wearable length than the actual length as the thickness of the bracelet reduces the internal measurement. If at any time you would like the actual length and is not in the description, please feel free to contact us.
