No antique jewellery collection is complete without an antique silver book chain necklace.

These are such versatile pieces of jewellery and are as wearable today as they were back in the Victorian era, rising to popularity in the Aesthetic era where beauty was championed for beauties sake.

Made from sterling silver this chain has lovely pierced fancy links adjoined intercepted by further decorative links, the links lay fairly flat to the neck and decolletage.

It has a large antique silver spring ring fastener and a short chain length with an attached jump ring for hanging your favourite locket or pendant from it.

This one is a good wearable length and the longer book chains are certainly harder to find.

A gorgeous piece that works well with many outfit choices, she will be your go to necklace for any occasion!
