Gold Fancy Link Long Chain Necklace
Composed of gold, this French Art Nouveau long chain necklace was created around 1900. The fancy elongated links each contain an interlocking series of circular, elliptical and trefoil motifs, and are joined by twinned circular trace links for flexibility. Combining a pleasing heft with a graceful, airy design, this versatile necklace easily doubles to stand on its own, or nests among complementary period chains.
