Black Vulcanite Chain Necklace with Velvet and Gold Clasp, c.1890s


Large Victorian black chain choker necklace with gold and black velvet clasp from approximately the 1890s. Unusually large chain links (5/8 inch wide) of vulcanite. With early safety catch clasp.

An excellent statement piece. Most likely a piece of mourning jewelry from the late 19th century, when black was nearly the only acceptable color to wear while in mourning. 

It measures 10 inches long and weighs 1 oz.
