A stunning, generously long Belcher chain measuring 47 ½ inches, consisting of  D-shaped links (each link: 7.5mm round, 4mm width) of Pinchbeck* metal. This long-guard chain necklace has been decorated with stars and raised dots, joined by a cuffed fold-over plunger which fits into a clasp in the form of a cuffed hand wearing a ring set with a tiny stone.

Very unusual, and because of its length, may be wrapped around the neck (or the wrist) more than once.  It is the longest of this type we have had, the weight is 87+g. This is English, 1700’s, and a glorious buttery gold color.
