Antique Watch Chain Conversion with detachable Scottish Agate Pendant
It took me a verrrry long time to find the antique components for this watch chain conversion. But I’m so glad I waited, because the result is better than I imagined.
It started with a gold fill watch chain with a lovely engraved slide that was filthy but in perfect condition. The unusual chain has double and triple chains attached to engraved end pieces and a slide with different hand chased designs on each side. After I cleaned her up, I went looking for the perfect swivel dog clips—sturdy with precise edges and a great heft. These fit the bill beautifully.
The ornate T-Bar with a repoussé center was a very lucky find. But adds so much to the beauty of the piece. Finally there’s the pristine oval Scottish Banded Agate fob that I’ve attached to a spring clasp so you can take it off or add as you wish.
You have a lot of looks in one piece with this necklace. Wear it with or without the agate. T-bar at the front or side, or rotate the whole piece to show off the pretty engraved slide in the front. Take a look at my pictures to see what I mean.
The condition of the gold fill is excellent. The chain is flawless. The agate pristine. And the slide is lovely.
Yep, I’d say she was worth the wait.
