This exquisite bold statement necklace is entirely made by hand. Worthy of a warrior, represented by its shield shaped pendant. As a counterpoint to the bold design, the pendant is hand granulated. When you turn it around you realize it is entirely made of tiny pieces of sterling wire expertly soldered together creating the filigree background.
The necklace has the most beautiful warm patina that can only be achieved by the passage of time. It was cleaned but not polished, the patina is part of its magic and allure. The pendant is slightly over 2 3/4″ in diameter. The bail is granulated.
The pendant is strung on an intricately woven custom rope that includes the clasp. It is an exquisite piece you won’t find again.
The condition is excellent, it looks unworn. Pieces like this are hard to date, perhaps made in India based on the design and manufacturing method. Slight imperfections are part of its character. It is marked 925, carefully tested.
Wearable length is 19.25″. Total approximate weight is 64 grams.
