This is a gold plated vintage chain link belt with embossed buckle parts and embossed oval links too. The gold metal expansion section is 3/4" Wide, and the center of the 4-link section when ON rests in place at 3 1/2" to 4" Wide in the center.
Goldtone Chain Link Belt has 4 graduated chain strands between two triangular shaped Clasp covers connected by super trendy late 70s early 80s snake chain expansion belt.
SIZE/FIT: When ON the body, I find it will go around a body of 28" to 30 1/2".
4 strand section is 13" Long including the buckle parts.
Expansion belt is 12" L.
CONDITION: excellent vintage condition:
Expansion Section: the gold finish looks like new.
4-Strand Section: Be sure to look at the photos of embossed design & pristine finish up close.
The 2 heavy gold triangular buckle parts also look new BUT there is mild finish wear on the small connector loops which hold the 4 strands at both ends. Not very noticeable, but there.
AND a somewhere along the way the hook under 1 of the buckle parts was pressed down to keep the expansion belt held there permanently. That hook's surface has lost some plating, but it will never be seen when the belt is ON.
I bought this piece from a fashionista friend who bought it vintage with the old (looks like Sacks 5th Ave) tag remnant in place - she collects too- but I'm not so sure it was ever owned or worn- I am a bit obsessed with bling belts and bought it for styling and shoots and while offering it here at MySoulRepair ! Aren’t they fabulous?!
In excellent collected vintage condition
