DESCRIPTION (Please scroll to the bottom to view video)

This utterly charming Victorian necklace began its life as two separate pieces… an approximately 30cm Sterling silver ladies Albertina and a 20cm (low grade) Silver with gilt over Albertina.  Somewhere is its history the two have been cleverly incorporated to make a very wearable 50cm necklace with associated fancy T-bar and glorious silver tassel.

Each have fancy embossed slides and terminals and each are three strand with rope twist centre strands and match quite nicely, one could say perfectly imperfect!
The combination and how this necklace sits upon the neck and décolletage, with opposing silver gold gilt, and sterling, is absolutely striking!

If nothing else you can be assured no one else will have this identical antique piece of jewellery!


Length 50cm - not counting the drop tassel

37 Grams

Tested via XRF as Sterling silver and a low grade silver with gilt over

Very very good antique condition. All ‘slides’ slide, gold gilt slide slips a little too much but this doesn’t matter!  Slight patina to silver.  Dog clip works perfectly. Lovely condition.
