This delicious unique antique 'fine' jewellery piece has been created using a combination of double strand chain (salvaged from an antique Albertina watch chain), blended with a section of fancy trombone and rope twist link watch chain, plus a short section of chunky long link vintage silver chain with texturised detail to some links. Additionally, I have used a section of antique 'roller ball' chain for the centre drop, from which the star is suspended. Phew!
Adorning these chains are 2 twinkly Victorian silver and 'paste' (crystal) Moon and Star charms (formerly brooches), plus a chunky solid hallmarked T Bar.
The star piece is hollow and has a little 'scarring' on the reverse, where the hinge and pin once lived (see photo).
The chains and charms have a lovely aged antique patina, which only time can provide and this only adds to the character and charm of the piece.
There is a classic and typical Albert swivel fastening (back of neck position), which has the versatility of being able to be fixed/worn at 2 different lengths.
Stunningly eyecatching when worn - boho luxe!
Neck chain section: 17.75 inches at longest - can also be worn at 16 inches
Longest Charm Drop: 3.5 inches
Star: 4cm x 3.7cm
T Bar: 4cm
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!
