Georgian Pinchbeck Fancy Link Chain With Hand Holding A Red Stone Clasp



Pinchbeck is a form of brass, an alloy of copper and zinc, mixed in proportions so that it closely resembles gold in appearance. It was invented in the 18th century by Christopher Pinchbeck, a London clockmaker. Since gold was only sold in 18-carat quality at that time, the development of pinchbeck allowed ordinary people to buy gold 'effect' jewellery on a budget.It has now become a very collectible and desirable metal especially because unlike gold plate it is solid and so never wears away.
