Stunning vintage gold filled rope chain that used to be a gentleman's pocket watch chain has been combined with hand knotted string of multicoloured opals of slightly mixed sizes. (the chain looks almost unworn, in near perfect condition)

The opals are hand knotted on silk thread and finished with gold filled hardware. The large bolt clasp holding the locket has house various charms and the locket is removable. 

The antique gold filled locket has an engraving on the front and is plain on the other side. The engraving in old scripted type reads: JHS / GHS but these things are notoriously hard to decipher so I may be wrong.

If you live in a humid environment it’s best to store your jewellery pieces in airtight containers whenever possible. 
With time and wear plating will wear off and your item will tarnish this is the same for any jewellery, whether it is gold plated, silver or gold - all metals oxidise and react to the elements. By following correct care instructions you can keep your plated piece in perfect condition for years.
