The cross was added at a later date and was not original to the necklace, but the chain, I'll just say I no longer own it! :)...regards

Comment by tomsantiquesetcetera on July 30, 2018 at 11:09am

Karin, now I'm confused...originally you said it (all of it) was gold filled, now you're saying the necklace is 9 kt gold and only the cross is g.f. 9 kt means that the necklace is 37.5% Pure gold...if the necklace part weighs(i.e., 3 oz) and gold sells for $1,350. per ounce, then the gold value is $1,518.75.

How much did the Dealer who saw it say it was worth?

Update!!! I found out that it is a Victorian book chain and it's 9kt gold. The cross is in fact Rose gold filled and the cameo is in tact. Thank you all for your assistance. I was able to have a local dealer come over to look at it...regards

I should have said that gold filled and gold plated have very little gold in them. A buyer of gold will not buy g.f. or plated items as the cost to retrieve the gold is greater than the value of the gold. Both have less than 5% gold (.05) at the karat weight. If this necklace is 8 k, divide 8 by 24, equals 33% (.333).

  I have a collection of at least 40 or more very beautiful rosaries that I collected over at least 15 years.  Most all of my rosaries are engraved with the maker's name and most are engraved Sterling silver.  Many of these also have Sterling silver chains.  My collection began when the owner of a local consignment shop showed me this antique chaplet that came in a black leather bag.  It has what are termed Victorian lilies and I now don't remember whether there are other engraved marks on it.  Her comment to me was that this lovely rosary was only $5.00.  The design of the brass? medal and the beads leads me to believe that this might date to around 1900 but that's strictly my guess.

Comment by Jeremy Woodoff on July 29, 2018 at 11:11pm

In my experience gold filled is preferred. It is formed by mechanically bonding a layer of gold onto the base metal. It is generally much thicker than gold plating, which is produced by electro-chemically depositing a very thin layer of gold on the base metal.

"Gold filled" is less valuable than "gold plated". Cameo  appears to have forehead and hair clipped off to make it fit... Looks cheaply assembled, pretty yes, but not valuable or old.  

Comment by Karin Lucas on July 29, 2018 at 7:12pm

hello I found this very interesting flat chain with a lovely gold filled cross that is adorned with a cameo. I have never seen anything like it. Both are gold filled and appear to be very old...HELP
