DATE: Victorian, c.1890

A classic Victorian 9 karat gold guard chain, 48 inches in length with belcher links and a dog tag fastener. Guard chains are long chains that were traditionally used to hold a watch - or sometimes a fur muff, used to keep the hands warm - and were most common in the Georgian and Victorian eras. They're long, over 45 inches in length (and sometimes over 60!), and usually feature a sturdy dog tag fastener, originally intended to hold the watch.
