Amazing antique box chain necklace with a striking amount of detail and charm.
The 3 dimensional and realistic gloved hand is grappling a bale loop with a 2-carat ruby dangling down.
The box chain is without any crushed links or irregularities in shape. The back side of the hand is dented inward a tiny bit right above the hand's cuff.
Overall in very good condition.
From the Victorian era. Clasp and ruby drop are not original to the chain.
The chain is 16.5 inches with the pendant dropping 1 3/4 inch below. Width is 3/4 inch.
