Fabulous Victorian Intricate Gold Filled Book Chain Necklace, Post Civil War Era Book Pendant Choker w/ Cameo & Original Pictures, Antique 1860s, Rolled Gold offered by TheJewelSeeker on 21VintageStreet. This one was a bit difficult to date. The book chain is large wide style, and appears to be from the late 1800’s era, along with the pendant. The top of the book chain links are a figural leaf, and the alternating connector link has an elongated oval open center panel. The center has a dangling book pendant (Locket), with raised Carved Cameo with a pink background and white profile of a woman. Upon opening the pendant, there are pictures of a man and woman. It’s always a breath taking moment to make a discovery and find the original pictures that were put into the locket. The gold tone frames have oval centers. The locket snaps closed very tightly and the chain has a well working jump ring. This is a pretty awesome and quite rare piece of jewelry that a vintage collector would love to have in their collections.
