Victorian 14K Gold Watch Chain Bracelet with Toggle Clasp


This is a beautiful and complex Victorian watch chain that can now be worn as a bracelet.  The link of the chain is reminiscent of a bike chain and this one pivots and rotates in more than one direction.  It is almost like a fidget and it invites you to study it and play with it.  On one end is a ring on the other a beautiful sculptural toggle or t-bar. The t-bar with the ring serves as a clasp and gives a lovely closure to the bracelet. 

The length of the bracelet is 8 3/8" the extra length allows one to feed the toggle into the ring.  The bracelet sits comfortably around the wrist and base of the hand.  It fits a wrist from 6 1/4" to 7 1/2". It weighs 24.2 grams and has been acid tested to be 14K gold.  The interior of the ring is marked 14K. 

Great addition to a wrist stack, beautiful worn alone as well.  

Circa 1890
