Antique Victorian Chunky 9ct Gold Guard Chain


A luxurious antique Victorian guard chain made up of chunky cable links fashioned in 9ct gold. Each link is lovely and smooth with a muted golden-bronze tone and faceted workmanship that glitters beautifully as it catches the light. 

Guard chains were at the height of popularity in the 18th & 19th Century. Both fashionable and practical, they were deliberately long enough to be tucked into a belt and the clasp was usually adorned with a pocket watch, lorgnette or muff.

It’s rare to find a guard chain of this width and it has a good length, measuring 56 inches so it can be worn as one long chain or looped twice around the neck to make two festoons of gold.

We recommend you insure for £3,000. We can provide a written Valuation on completion of the sale.
