This beautiful antique Victorian gold 'fine' jewellery piece has been created using an antique 10ct rose gold set with pearls swallow (formerly a brooch), coupled with a substantial 9ct gold multi fancy link Albert watch chain with heavy T bar drop.
I have used 3 difference antique chains to create this piece. The longest section being a chunky double belcher style link, which tapers into a section of 'roller ball' link chain (both watch chains). The finer chain drop from which the T bar hangs, is a miniature version of the double belcher link chain.
This 'old gold' necklace has a lovely soft rose patina. The swallow piece is rose gold and fairly large, so please take note of the measurements below.
The T bar is one of the largest and heaviest I have come across, again please check measurements.
Swallows were a favourite of the Victorians/Edwardians given as a love token to a sweetheart to signify that they would return to them from their travels.
A classically cool forever heirloom piece. Love love love!!
Overall length of necklace when worn: 22.5 inches/28.5cm
Neck Section: 17.25 inches/44cm
Drop Section: 6.7cm
Swallow: 4.5cm wide x 4cm tall
T Bar: 4.3cm
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!
