Age Of Elegance - Vintage Gold Plated Long Chain.  This wonderful chain is crafted from gold plate over base metal.  Featuring a Georgian Revival design, lovely detail, and quality workmanship.  This chain can be worn long or it can be doubled up for a layered look.  It is comprised of a fancy foxtail linked chain design with fluted cylinders throughout the chain.  The chain features a secure spring ring clasp in perfect working order. This Vintage chain is so versatile and displays such elegance, a perfect piece for any collection. 

History: Chains date at least back to 2500 BC, and we can give credit to the Ancient Egyptians for threading links of gold and silver together – much like we thank them for hammering out sheets of gold and rolling it into early wire. ... By 300 BC, the elite upper-class was wearing chains that contained gemstones in the links. 

These Vintage chains have much more gold content that contemporary jewellery.  Therefore the gold plating is much thicker , and better quality.
