Description
A large ocean blue or clear crystal is bound up in a filigree that resembles a bible. Matching beads and large freshwater pearls form the neckchain. The French medieval Cathedral of Our Lady of Chartres has ajoure metalwork that decorates the chapels inside. Pendant is 1.5" long x 1" wide. Burnished bronze metal finish. Lobster claw clasp. Signed and copyrighted Sweet Romance USA. Background story: French filigree jewelry of the late 1800s inspired the design of this necklace. The beginnings of the Machine Age enabled jewelry makers to cut out a shape, pierce it and apply texture with various dies and tooling. This technique is called ajoure and it is still used to create the lovely components of this necklace. By the end of the 19th century, almost everyone could afford several pieces of jewelry. The demand was answered by several manufacturers who created jewelry in non-precious materials that was fashionable and of high quality. French jewelry revived ecclesiastical themes of the 16th century which proved very popular. This item is handmade and ships in 7-14 days.
