This is a really pretty and unusual necklace made from one half of a victorian rhinestone encrusted brass belt buckle.
There are five hanging accent chains that have brass rondelles and Swarovski crystals attached to each chain.
The Swarovski crystal beads are black, clear or smoky gray. Each strand features a different array of black and clear crystal beads as well as elegantly rustic brass beads.
The belt buckle really catches the eye, featuring an amazing motif of etched brass and beautiful black and clear prong set rhinestones.
This pendant hangs from a matching brass chain connected with a classic, simple lobster claw clasp.
I love the look and romance of these Victorian buckles. I have been collecting them for years because they are so intricate and feminine. The contrast of the detailed brass against the shining rhinestones make the pieces very elegant and intriguing.
This necklace is really amazing on the neck. When I make these pieces, my fellow brick and mortar shop peeps always say "this is my favorite one" even though there are several and more to come.
I have two in my personal collection and always get tons of complements when I wear them.
It really sparkles and shines especially against the dark brass patina.
I know you will love this piece. It was just a second away from being my third personal piece.
