The longest watch chain we have ever come across, this authentic Sterling Victorian slinky watch chain has an unusual link. Victorian watch chains were worn by women, as well as men, to hang a watch, which would snap into the end of a long chain and tuck into a pocket or a belt at the waist. (This is why original watch chains were always very long. Shorter watch chains are part of a larger chain that has been cut down to make 2 or 3 necklaces). At 78 inches in length, our chain can be looped over the head and worn 4 or 5 times around the neck. The chain alone is beautiful and easily stands alone. Our chain looks well with bulky sweaters or open necklines, with a suit or jeans and a tee shirt, This classic chain can be worn every day and is truly a piece to be passed down for generations.
