This vintage Hermès sterling silver Chaine d’Ancre necklace is a classic bold link that makes a statement. The Chaine d’Ancre collection was created by Robert Dumas in 1938 when he was inspired by the anchor chains of boats passing along the Normandy coast. The collection has become iconic, evolving throughout the years while preserving the nautical essence of the original design. This chain features large mariners links, connected at the end by a circular ring and bar link. Established in 1837, Hermès originally produced harnesses, bridles, and bags for European nobleman before expanding the brand to include clothing and accessories. This simple yet bold chain is timeless and a perfect addition to any outfit.
The chain is marked “Hermès”, “Paris”, and sterling silver on the circular toggle clasp. It also contains the French mark for sterling silver on the last link and “Made in France” on the second to last link. The chain measures 16 1/2” and weighs 148.5 grams.
Circa the 1980’s.
