This beautiful 'fine' jewellery piece has been created using antique and vintage jewellery elements.
I have created this eclectically gorgeous necklace using a fusion of 3 different style link Victorian 'Guard' chain, lending a truly quirky and one of a kind design to set the stage for the stunningly beautiful vintage 14k solid gold hummingbird piece. The hummingbird has a tiny ruby for an eye. There beautifully textural and feathering work to the bird.
The 9ct gold chains have pretty faceted fancy links and a delicious soft rosy gold patina that only antique gold can boast. One of the chains has a pretty oblong faceted bead detail, which sits nicely on the collarbone area, giving interest.
The necklace fastens centrally to the front by way of an antique 9ct gold Albert swivel fastener.
Keeping the hummingbird company is a 6.5cm chain drop leading to a prettily detailed and unusual Victorian simple 9ct rose gold T bar, which was sourced from an Antique Albertina watch chain. The perfect balance and companion to this wonderfully unique, rare and highly collectable Lisa de Bidaph Forever Heirloom Jewellery piece.
The necklace is quite light weight and delicate to wear.
An eclectic collectors item (such pieces are becoming more and more difficult to source). Absolutely stunning when worn. Is sure to be a much admired, conversational and envied piece.
Overall Length when worn: 22 inches
Neck Chain Length: 17.25 inches
Hummingbird: 2.2cm x 2cm (excluding bale ring)
T Bar: 3cm
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!
