Description : How did they make it? This long, long gold chain necklace is so exquisitely made that it's difficult to see how fine the links are. They epitomise luxurious French quality - the sections slide like silk over one another. Fine rounded rectangular line of gold links, very flexible and supple. <P><P>
The large jump loop commonly attached to these sautoirs, probably held a fob or charm of some sort. It is not used to open the necklace.  <P><P>
Chain is very flexible and can be wound more than once around the neck and/or many times around the arm/wrist. It's the perfect accessory to finish a smart outfit. Understated elegance. <P><P>
