A wonderful example of Victorian Aesthetic this book chain collar is the perfect statement piece for anyone who loves antique jewellery!
Featuring three engraved leaves draped across the centre panel, two rows of hand pierced, unique stars running the length of the necklace and finished with a beautifully beaded edge, (a popular design of the Victorian era), she makes for a delightful piece of antique jewellery. The size and weight of this piece makes it feel wonderfully luxurious when worn and is sure to be enjoyed by anyone who wears her.
This Victorian Aesthetic necklace is best suited to smaller frames as it is quite short. However, if you own another one or were to buy a similar book chain then the two can be connected to make a long necklace!
There is a bolt ring attached in the centre of the decorated panel allowing a pendant or locket to be added, this antique book chain would look fantastic with a Victorian aesthetic locket attached!
