New photo's and material - Great Aunt Julia's Necklace

Great Aunt Julia's gold bead necklace
This necklace belonged to my Great great Aunt Julia; she was born in the mid 1800's, was from New York and traveled to Colorado escorting my 15 year old Grandfather in 1885-
The gold bead necklace (61 beads and 14 inches long) is on a gold? chain, quite sturdy, very fine (they are tiny beads) linked and four-sided, think they called it foxtail, I'm not sure what metal.
Close-up is of the mark on the small round stud integral to the push-clasp. No karat marks.
Beads are 1/4 in and chain is 1/32 in dia. -I had it tested and beads are gold fill.
Any info appreciated
