This gorgeous Victorian necklace is a VERY wearable and collectible piece of antique jewelry.
Made with sensuous, lightly patinated brass, the necklace is characterized by a highly textural pendant with classic old-world foliate accents.
As you can see, the centerpiece is comprised of applied ornamental "medallions" that give it a dynamic, dimensional appeal.
It is grasped on each side by two lengths of textural rolo chain which terminate at smaller oblong decorative pieces on the sides.
Single chains attached to the smaller oblong pieces join in the back with a simple spring ring clasp.
The centerpiece and oblong accents show a teeny amount of discoloration and a few dark spots on the back while the necklace is pervaded by a light coat of expected oxidization.
Overall, the necklace remains in good antique condition.
This piece is a necessity for those who have a passion for antique jewelry.
These necklaces look so great on the neck and make a unique fashion statement.
