Renaissance Chain Necklace - Large Oval
When I began doing research into the jewelry of the Renaissance Era, I was delighted by the frequency of large golden chains showing up in portraiture. This style is such an iconic *look* from this era, but it can be really difficult to source chains that are this large, especially in long lengths.
Finding a modern material that would work for this was a high priority, so I was very excited to find this chain!
These are large 14mm oval loops, so you get all the impact of these Renaissance styles! These are gold-plated brass in a very nice quality, plus the links themselves have a bit of texture to them for even more light-catching shine!
Available here in two lengths:
16 Inches (40.5 cm) - Shown
19 Inches (48 cm)
48 Inches (122 cm) - Shown
The 16" 7 19" versions close with a lobster clasp in the back, while the 48" length is continuous with no closures. Note that the 48" version is long enough to wear knotted, a style commonly seen in portraits!
Please note that this can easily be customized to whatever length you would like - feel free to contact me with custom requests.
