This beautiful and amusing antique 'fine' jewellery piece has been created using a former Victorian 'Darwinian' inspired brooch, being silver with diamond and ruby paste encrusted double monkeys swinging from a silver trapeze bar with diamond paste (crystal) set finials.
I have suspended this miniature quirky work of art from a new fine sterling silver chain. As with many of my necklaces, this piece has the added bonus of being able to be worn at two different lengths/fixing points.
Overall length of necklace: 18.5 inches - Can also be worn at 15.75 inches
Length/Drop of Monkey piece: 4.2cm (w) x 5cm (h)
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!

Be Gentle with Me...........
Please treat your vintage necklace with the care and respect deserving of its age. Rub gently with a soft silver polishing cloth periodically to keep its vibrancy. Please do not bathe in your vintage jewellery. Avoid dropping on hard surfaces. Enjoy!
