Victorian, 1830s to 1900s
Gorgeous Rose Gold slide chain necklace from the Victorian days features a very unusual slide. The slide is a clover or three petaled flower, each leaf or petal is a stunning very fiery Blue Opal. At the center, a tiny Ruby cabochon offsets the blue and complements the Rose Gold. It is one of the prettiest I have seen.
Overall approximate measurements for the slide are 9/16" long by almost 9/16" at the widest point and 3/8" thick at the center. Slide is 14k Rose Gold, unmarked and carefully tested.
Chain is 56" long not including the latch. It is a beautiful and strong flat oval link chain about 2mm wide with excellent weight. Drapes beautifully. Chain is gold filled with no dents or kinks.
Overall approximate weight is 14 grams.
Excellent condition with very minor signs of wear for a necklace that is over 100 years old. The slide does not stop and tends to flow to the latch. It can also come off the chain if not properly stored.
Estimated to date from the 1880's.
This information is intended to help you understand our sizing methods.
Please note many small measurements are in millimeters. It is a Jewelry Industry standard for accuracy.

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.
