This is a super cool eclectic multi-chain Victorian silver, marcasite and rock crystal antique 'fine' jewellery piece. which has been created by combining a fusion of Victorian and vintage elements.
I have used a section of chunky decorative silver Victorian locket chain which has lovely ball and pierced star detailing, together with an usual antique silver rope type link chain with rock crystal beads spaced along its length. This adds such an interesting, textural and decandent ingredient to the mix!
Centrally to the front there is an antique Albert swivel clasp, although the necklace fastens to the back of the neck by way of a bolt ring catch which has 3 ring options to choose from to get that perfect length.
These beautiful chains set the backdrop to the central trophy piece, being an Art Deco 'fine' silver (hallmarked 935) oval frame piece (previously a brooch or buckle), embellished with twinkling dark grey marcasites; from which I have suspended a silver skull* charm from the centre - tres unique!
Keeping the buckle company is a coordinating length of rope/rock crystal bead chain drop, with a vintage etched and crossed cross attached as the finial. Phewwww!
All these elements are highly sought after, desirable and collectable.
Pretty, yet edgy rock n roll chic - eternally cool with a dose of Victorian glamour.
* Please be aware the skull piece is pre-loved and not antique/vintage.
Neck Section: 18 inches (max), can also be fastened at 17 inches an 15.5 inches
Overall length when worn:
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. To avoid discolouration of silver and any 'paste' crystal stones. Do not spray perfume on your jewellery. Avoid dropping on hard surfaces. At the end of the day remove and put to rest in it's sumptuous 'Forever Heirloom Jewellery' Pouch provided. Enjoy!
