Victorian 16" Natural Gold Nugget Chain
* * SOLD * *
An outstanding, Victorian, gold-rush-era chain, whose twenty-five natural gold nugget stations are connected by individual 14k gold links. The high-color, 22 - 24k gold nuggets are similar in size, but are various in form and texture— we love natural nuggets because, like small "found" sculptures, each has its own inimitable texture and truly-unique character! This antique chain is a rarity. At 16” long, it makes a great short layer in an arrangement of necklaces. It can also be doubled and worn as a bracelet! This closes with a period, clip-style clasp. It has a substantial, comforting heft, and gives the best big gold vibes!
