Story

SPECIAL MARKDOWN!

The grandeur of the Victorian era is brought to life with this very fine and august example of a sterling silver bookchain collar. With its elegant and chic style, this adornment for the neck makes a major statement.

The design of the spectacular necklace is clearly influenced by the archaeological revival styles which were impacting English (and most all Western) jewelers of the day. Constructed of four horizontal layers it utilizes form, texture, shadow and light to create a wide necklace the drapes beautifully on the neck.

At the bottom are three dimensional egg shapes capped with textured leaf forms. They are suspended from two similar layers of interwoven circular links, one single and one double. Applied to the top of these is a high polished flat, ornamental applique. Atop these are spheres of glowing silver.

The reverse reads as beautifully as the front. Created in a fan shape, the clasp is hand engraved on the back with fancy script capital letters, the initials EPH. If the clasp is worn at the front, there is also a longer element with subtle bale to suspend a locket or drop.The 1880's never looked so good.
