This 9ct heavy men's curb chain has been polished prior to listing. It is 23 inches long so will sit nicely on the chest. It is fully hallmarked by the Sheffield assay office. The hallmark can be found on the back of the link which hold the lobster clasp. There are no major marks or scratches that we feel necessary to mention. If this is the sort of style of chain that you are looking for then we are sure that you will be happy with it.
