ANTIQUE VICTORIAN FRENCH GUARD LINK CHAIN 18CT GOLD ON SILVER CIRCA 1900

The links depict a series of lover’s knots which have long been a symbol of love, loyalty and friendship and symbolise an everlasting bond that is unbreakable and forever entwined.
The chain is complete with a ring clasp at the end which may have been used to attach a locket or a cylinder of fur known as a Muff to keep the wearers hands warm in winter.
It is a high-quality piece and can be worn as one long chain or wrapped twice around the neck.
