18K Gold Vintage Italian Milgrain Curling Link Chain
This seductive Italian 18k yellow gold chain is made up of sinuous connected links that curl with incredible milgrain work. The links have been cast, but the milgrain work has been added on after, by hand. The ornate necklace is an eye catching piece, linked together by hand. The chain has been stamped with 750 for gold standard in Italy, as well as the winged horse pegasus mark, and Star, 229 and AR. These marks are the post-fascist Italian marks that were established circa 1968, where by the fasces was removed, but all other marks left. The 229 number stands for the maker of the gold necklace. AR stands for Arezzo, the city of oldest registered gold makers in Italy and also the most innovative.
The necklace is approximately 18 inches long and weighs 9.6 grams. It is a really lovely piece that recalls some of the Art Deco motifs and has a great vintage look. Perfect for everyday wear.
