Lockets & Slide Chains







Well-dressed ladies wore "long chains", sometimes looped and caught on the
bodice with a brooch, sometimes worn full length, and often holding a
lorgnette or watch. Chains were made in both precious and non-precious
metals and could be extremely simple or ornamented with stones and seed
pearls. Some had slides, which have become collectible in their own right.
Today’s collectors create bracelets from them, as well as from fobs, button
covers and cuff link tops.

Lockets were often worn on a matching collar, a chain or a black velvet
ribbon as well as on long chains.
