The "hand motif" is a prominent symbol in Victorian jewelry and makes this watch chain more desirable to the collector. This chain is GUARANTEED to be AT LEAST 12k solid gold. It was evaluated by a gemologist who ran it through the EXDRF spectrometer (the fancy tumbler machine which, with much accuracy, determines the karat fineness of gold) and it showed just above the 12k range. Everything is 12k but the rose gold hook clasp, which appears to be rose gold filled.
It's a shield-shape with heavy raised design on the underside, and a piece of oval amethyst glass prong-set in the top. The amethyst glass has some abrasion (see photos) but doesn't detract from the beauty of the piece. This Victorian slide chain necklace measures 28 long.It tests positive for at least 12k gold other than the clip, and it weighs 19 grams. It's in good antique condition.
