The Revival Collection - Victorian "M" Conversion Charm Necklace
The Revival Collection features redesigned one of a kind pieces using antique materials.
The pendant on this necklace was converted from a victorian mourning bracelet. Mourning and Sentimental jewellery flourished during the Victorian period. This jewellery was worn as an outward display of keeping someone near. An expression of love and remembrance.
A warm gold frame surrounds an engraved gothic initial "M" strung from a new vermeil (gold pated sterling silver) chain with bolt clasp.
HOW TO WEAR:
Whilst this necklace is perfect for everyday, the victorian metalwork is delicate and easily bent if put under pressure. For this reason, it is recommended this pendent be worn on a shorter chain to prevent any tear or pulls from a sweater etc. The necklace can be washed with mild soap and water, then polished with a gold jewellery polish cloth.
This pendant is in excellent antique condition. Please be mindful though that the pendant itself is well over 100 years old.
