Some jewelry is just plain fabulous...and this choker necklace rests in that category. Festoons of 18k yellow gold, natural pearls and, more importantly, a fringe necklace of indescribable beauty and rarity.
It's such a joy to become caretaker of something you won't ever see again. Draping across the neck is a cascade of chains, natural pearls and finery in a sweeping field of golden flowers.
From the Victorian era dating to circa 1870, its Romanticism is clear, its nod to the archaeological revival styles of the Green, Romans and other high civilizations also unmistakable. Drape yourself in a diaphanous gown or French white blouse and jeans and you are all set.
Mostly handmade, the design aesthetic is perfectly balanced; it feels luxurious and rests on the neck, keeping it in place and moving as you do.
