Antique 9ct Yellow Gold Long Guard Chain

Antique 9ct Yellow Gold Long Guard Chain


A longuard chain is such a versatile piece in your jewellery box. It can be worn with any neckline! Wear it long, doubled, tripled, clasped, with charms, without charms... the possibilities are endless. 


Longuard or muff chains were popularised during the Victorian era and used for carrying objects such as fobs, keys or glasses but also precious items such a pendants or watches. They can still be used for such, but we love them doubled or tripled around a neck for a real flash of gold.


This longuard is special. Not only is it a beautiful buttery yellow gold, it is in fantastic condition with no issues to note and still has its original length and antique tag showing it's 9ct gold. Plus... the swiveling flat edged dog clasp is the icing on the cake. 


The swiveling dog clasp is a perfect addition for adding some charms to your stack, or perfectly beautiful as is. The gold of the chain is a buttery soft yellow gold and the faceted links flow beautifully when worn. 


A lot of times these old chains don’t make it to modern day in these long lengths so you're really nabbing a true rare piece of history.


Condition: The chain is in fantastic condition with only very light signs of wear commensurate with age. The chain is in its original state with the dog clasp hanging, perfect for pendants! The dog clasp is in perfect working condition.


Hallmarks: There is an antique tag stamped 9c to one end of the links. The dog clasp is also stamped 9c.
