Vintage 18K Gold Snake Chain by Tecnigold


Made by Tecnigold—a high quality gold manufacturer in Borso del Grappa, Northern Italy—this vintage 18k gold snake chain is the perfect staple for your jewelry collection. This is a shorter chain, 15 1/2” long, so it is the perfect length for a single charm or pendant to hang just above the collarbone. The smooth chain is super fluid, allowing charms to move up and down it easily. This particular chain has a unique twist: it is very subtly striped with white gold, which is almost unnoticeable but catches the light to give the chain added sparkle. Tecnigold was founded by Francesco Piotto in 1979, and has represented the Vicenza jewelry district for over 40 years.

The chain weighs 3.85 grams. It is 15.5 inches long. It has the Tecnigold maker’s mark on its lobster clasp, and is also marked with 18k gold and a small sunshine engraving. The chain width is 1mm. 

Circa 1990s.
