Gold Chains.

I stock small selection of chains for sale on the internet which are in addition to those held at the antiques centre.

Due to a severe shortage of chains, w.e.f. 4th Feb vintage single chains are only for sale to customers who are purchasing or have in the past purchased, a pocket watch
For advice of selecting a chain please see my blog post here. The relatively thin gold chains by themselves do not photograph well against a plain background (and get lost against a patterned one) and frequently appear very bright or dull. I can, on request, advise or photograph the chain and watch together which normally produces a much better result.

Some chains have a "tail" to attach a fob medal, if not used the tail can be tucked out of the way when worn or it can be detached, please specify when ordering if you want me to do that for you, the spare links will be taken off and sent with the chain.

All shown here are stock items, those at the antique centres not being shown. All clips work and are secure unless otherwise stated, the length quoted excludes the clips etc. I am limited to the number of pictures I can have on the web site but click on picture and you may find another.

    Describing colour is also difficult but I am from April 2017 going to attempt it where the chain is not what I would consider a natural gold colour (somewhere between yellow and rose gold), the picture above shows a range of gold chains from the top, a fairly dark rose gold through to a light rose gold (with copper in the alloy), then yellow gold (the bright one third from bottom is new, the rest being vintage or antique) and at the bottom a medium green chain (with tin in the alloy). High carat chains tend to be rather darker and more golden than 9 carat chains.

    Judging by the wide variety of colours I see it would seem that users in the past were not that fussy at matching chains to watches (except perhaps for green gold) as there are lots of light to medium rose gold chains about but almost all watches are yellow gold. The watch on the right of the picture is English 9 carat solid gold, the one on the left is a Dennison "Moon" grade in 10 carat filled gold and is the normal colour for Dennison cases. I use the darkish rose gold chain at the top of the picture with all gold watches.
