Five whole feet of the most stunning old chain I've ever laid my eyes on. Each gold link, which was undoubtedly made painstakingly one-at-a-time by hand, features a beautiful crosshatch texture. The detail doesn't just exist in the length though. At the clasp is a black onyx figa pendant wearing a tiny gold bracelet studded with turqouise cabochons. No detail was left unconsidered, and the chain certainly wasn't left unloved. The patina and small crinkles in the edges of the links add yet another layer of mystery and character.
Keep it together, or break it up into smaller pieces. The options are endless.
