A Victorian inspired bookchain or collar. Made with the chunkiest rolo chain that I could find. I wanted the necklace to be weighty and luxurious.
It features a solid sterling rolo/belcher chain. The links are 6mm in diameter and the wire itself used to make the chain is 1.2mm. The length of the necklace is approx. 19”. It closes with a lovely chunky bolt clasp. This is also sterling silver.
The bolt closure is perfect to hang your favourite pendant or charm. This chain weighs a solid 49 grams, and feels so lovely and weighty on.
The lions claw that is in the last two pictures is not included in this listing, but it is available in my shop.
This is heirloom quality jewellery. Handmade with heart and soul poured into it.
(Belcher chains were named after James Belcher or 'Jem' Belcher (15 April 1781 – 30 July 1811) who was an English bare-knuckle prize-fighter and Champion of All England 1800-1805.)
