This very pretty antique Victorian 'fine' jewellery piece has been created using a 9ct gold arrow (formerly a brooch), with 2 sweet flowers along the arrow shaft which are set with rose cut diamonds and rubies: A chain drapes between the 2 flowers; the centre of which suspends a cultured pearl. A delicate and dainty piece with heaps of detail and character.
I have set this sweet arrow on an antique Victorian 9ct gold length of guard chain The necklace fastens by way of a bolt ring clasp. Having the added advantage of being able to be fastened/worn at 2 different lengths, as I have incorporated 2 rings to fasten to, depending on your mood and neckline. (See approximate measurements below).
Arrows were a favourite of the Victorians, given as a love token to a sweetheart (cupids arrow perhaps?). This particular arrow being all the more sweet and romantic with the pretty floral detail with interlinking chain and pearl positioned along the shaft.
Please check measurements below to ensure that you are clear on the size of the arrow piece.
