Introducing a stunning antique find: a coveted 18-carat yellow gold chain, adorned with vibrant blue and white enamel accents and a fixed blue enamel charm holder.


Dating to the late Victorian era, this stunning chain is of Swiss origin, made by the watchmaker Vulcain, a Swiss luxury watchmaker founded in 1858 in La Chaux-de-Fond in the canton of Neuchâtel and later rebranded as Vulcain in 1894.


At 22.5 inches long, this chain boasts a wonderful charm holder featuring a concealed dog clip clasp hidden behind the enamelled fleur de lis, allowing you to easily add your lightweight charms and fobs.  Please be aware that the tongue of the dog clip does move less than 1mm to one side when opening/closing due to its age.  These enamelled Vulcain chains were originally sold with heavy pocket watches, so this beauty will have seen a lot of wear in its time and in order to preserve the condition we advise only wearing your lightweight small fobs and charms with it.  However, the necklace looks beautiful when worn alone as the fleur de lis accent.


While a few enamel links may have small sections where the enamel has worn/faded, the underlying 18-carat gold links remain in fabulous condition. We've replaced the bolt ring clasp with a modern 18-carat gold version for added durability.


Enamel chains of this calibre are exceedingly rare, making this piece a coveted addition to any antique jewellery collection.
