Purchased on a recent trip to the Parisian 'Marche aux Puces'. This beautiful antique Victorian 'fine' jewellery piece has been created using an 18ct gold and silver arrow (formerly a brooch), set with rose cut diamonds and a pearl. The shaft of the arrow being 18ct gold, whilst as was usual in this period, the diamonds would be set into silver to give extra light and sparkle.
This arrow is rare in that is it smaller and more compact than previous ones I have had for sale or seen. Making it a super cute piece! Please check measurements below to ensure that you are clear on the size of the arrow piece.
I have set this sweet arrow on an antique 9ct gold fancy link 'Lovers Knot' chain, complete with 9c tab and barrel clasp which has a nice 'snap' to it.
Arrows were a favourite of the Victorians given as a love token to a sweetheart (cupids arrow maybe?). A classically cool forever heirloom piece. Love love love!!
Wear layered with any other of my longer necklaces.
Arrow: 4.2cm in length
Overall length of necklace: 17.75 inches
This is a quirky one-of-a-kind heirloom piece, bringing the wearer an item of jewellery as exclusive and individual as them. The perfect keepsake or gift to celebrate life's milestone occasions or just life!
