Vintage 9ct **Rolled Gold** Long Guard / Muff Chain Circa 1930
Rolled gold soared in popularity between 1920 - 1940s however it was first created in the 19th century in England where it became a popular choice in the making of costume jewellery. It allowed jewellers to create pieces that looked exactly like gold but came at a fraction of the price. The quality was also much better than gold plating and the pieces lasted much longer.
Made by fusing a base metal, usually silver, brass or copper between thin sheets of gold. The metals are then bonded together using heat and rolled into flat sheets for use in jewellery.
