Our exceptional 18K Georgian woven mesh featherlight necklace is both light in color and weightless about the neck. Woven mesh chains like this one are rarely found, as their delicacy makes them quite fragile and few have survived over the years. We have found one which has weathered the passage of time beautifully and likely sat in someone's jewelry drawer untouched for many generations. Notice the stamped stars and circles that are impressed on the decorative gold barrel clasp and its adjoining hook. Also notice the wonderful woven quality of the gold, and ask yourself how it was possible for any goldsmith to fabricate by hand, gold in such a manner. It is these details which set Georgian chains apart from all others.
