Where can I find a silver chain necklace with a toggle clasp?
Just that really. My dream necklace is the Hermes Chaine de Ancre necklace but don't think that will happen unless family member wins the lottery. But I would like a short chunky but not too chunky silver chain with a toggle clasp. I have no idea where to start looking. Any ideas? My budget is £100 max. Any help would be great.
They were super popular in Northern Ireland as the 18th birthday present of choice, 20 years ago, meaning there are lots of antique ones and modern ones knocking around here... Maybe try some antique jewellers? Also called watch chains, they do come in all shapes and sizes.
Thanks so much ledge and Tia. I'm not at all far from York actually About 45 mins drive. I've not heard of Palenque and will go look on their website. How interesting that they were so popular as 18th presents in Ireland. I've seen antique ones online but couldn't work out if they could be worn as necklaces. I will definitely investigate.
Any decent jeweller can change the clasp for you, so buy a chain and then a silver toggle, which they should have or can easily get. I change fastenings all the time, as many find a toggle easier to close than more traditional clasps. There are some brilliantly designed toggles, so you can even make this a feature of the necklace.
The Karen Millen one is really getting there. Am going to have a look at it when I go into town. Thanks Self. I've checked Pia BeBeside but couldn't spot one that was on the same lines though. Thanks for suggestion. They have some gorgeous things on there. Haven't heard of Pia.
