Not your great grandmother's little Victorian necklace ! ....... Big , bold , and all original. ...... . Made of acid tested , unmarked sterling , (at least no marks that I can find . ) Accented with three colors of gold high-lighting the butterfly and fauna that decorate the front of the oval puffed locket . Paired with a heavy link collar , deeply hand -chased on one side in a traditional swirl motif, plain on the reverse. Locket interior retains its two original bezels.
The perfect homage to the English Aesthetic Movement occurring in the middle of the long Victorian Period. Born out of taste , an appreciation for nature , and the belief that everyone was entitled to enjoy objects of beauty. Greatly influenced by Japanese design and sensibilities of the East. ..... Circa 1880.
In excellent condition , with two spring rings that make this piece versatile . ......Wear it with or without the locket, or even turn the collar and locket around for a smooth , modern look. .....
