Georgian Emerald Hand Necklace
DATE: Clasp: Georgian, c.1800 - Chain: Victorian, c.1880
We have married a Georgian era clasp with a Victorian era belcher chain to create this elegant antique necklace. The hand clasp dates to the early 19th Century, modelled in textured 15k yellow gold with applied detail, and - rather quaintly - it is wearing an emerald ring on the index finger... Jewellery wearing jewellery... The chain measures 18 inches in length, with a 9ct tag at one end.
Wearable lenght: 19 inches - Hand clasp: 3.4 x 1.2cm
Clasp tests as 15k gold, chain is tagged 9ct
Very good, with light wear commensurate with age and use. The clasp has had its pin replaced at some stage - see images
