DESCRIPTION (Please scroll to the bottom to view video)

Crafted around the turn of the last century circa 1900 this fancy ‘Rolled Gold’ chain supplies the look we all want but without the huge price tag!

Modelled as a fancy faceted belcher link chain interspersed with eight faceted round balls, and measuring a lovely long 140cm.
These long chains can be styled in so many versatile ways according to your daily styling preferences.

This particular example was crafted by the D.F. Briggs company of Attleboro, Massachusetts USA.  Founded by D. F Briggs in 1892 and later changing their name in 1922 to Briggs, Bates & Bacon.


Long at 140cm with its original dog clip with the ‘DFB’ mark this chain wraps double or (in our case) triple around the neck!

In lovely condition as expected from a quality rolled gold piece of jewellery by this well know easy maker, this jewellery wardrobe essential with care will last another 100 years!


140 cm Length

27.8 Grams

D.F.B for D.F. Briggs

Very very good antique condition.  Rosy hue in colour the rolled gold is in very good condition, slight patina to ball facets, nothing major.  Rosy hue in colour, bight and the faceted links and balls sparkle nicely.  Dog clip works perfectly.
