This beautiful vintage 'fine' jewellery piece has been created using a former 15ct gold Victorian 'Suffragette Chain'* brooch with intricate workmanship incorporating within the solid bar chain design a padlock, which has 4 tiny diamonds set within the 'screw' points of the padlock.
I have coupled the interesting and quirky piece with a vintage 9ct gold belcher chain.
A perfect little layering piece, having a wonderful gentle rosy gold patina. Equally as sweet worn alone of course.
* Suffragettes often carried or wore pieces of chain to represent their oppression by men, and a gold pin was an elegant way to do that.
Jewellery with soul. Wear alone or awesome layered with any of my other charm necklaces.
Necklace length: 17.5 inches
Chain Piece: 1.5 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!
