This beautiful 'fine' jewellery piece has been created using multiple 9ct and 14k gold vintage jewellery elements.
I have created this eclectically gorgeous necklace using a fusion of 4 different style vintage 9ct gold chains, which provide 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 emerald for an eye. There is beautifully textural and feathering work to the bird, which gives it a lovely realistic look.
The 9ct gold chains have pretty trellis work open links, along with other fancy links including a rope chain. I have also incorporated one of these pretty trellis French style links into the central chain drop, 'bringing in' and balancing the neck section nicely.
The necklace fastens centrally to the front by way of a Victorian antique 9ct gold Albert swivel fastener.
Keeping the hummingbird company is a 7cm chain drop. The chain drop again has 2 different chain link detail with the finial being a simple lightweight T bar.
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: 23 inches
Neck Chain Length: 17.75 inches
Hummingbird: 2.8 x 2.3cm (excluding bale ring)
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!
