Book chain style necklaces refer to a design involving a chain with links that are shaped like books. This design emerged during the Victorian era and was popular through the Edwardian period. 

When most people think of book chain jewelry, they consider it a Victorian style. Victorian book chain jewelry designs were elegant and included some of the most intricate artistic details on each book link such as engraved filigrees and scrollwork. Necklaces and bracelets were the most common forms of jewelry featuring book chains. 

This Oriental Revival chain is graduated and covered in a warm, pink 18k gold. French influence can be seen in the style rendering, with the pierced leaves as an example. Truly a beautiful addition to any neck stack or collection, this chain is a winner.
