English Sterling Bookchain Necklace



During the 1860's through the 1880's, the silver jewelry industry in England was occupied with designing a variety of bracelets and necklaces of lush engraving. (See the silver bangles offered on our web site) The British public was surprised when Queen Victoria came out wearing silver after years of mourning, donning only black attire and black mourning jewelry. Silver then caught their eye, became an object of interest and a popular accessory. A line of jewelry was made that we can enjoy today. This necklace is engraved with a floral pattern on each link. The extension link, often lost over time, remains with the necklace and awaits a locket of your choice. It can also be added to the chain to lengthen the necklace. This necklace design is typical of the Victorian era. It is in perfect condition, With the extra extension the chain is a generous 18 3/4 inches and can be worn on a turtleneck sweater. Each link is 1/2 inch high.
