Green Onyx Freshwater Pearls Victorian Chatelaine Scent Bottle Necklace - Maurelle Necklace
The history of perfume during the Regency and Victorian Eras is a fascinating subject and this delicate necklace pays homage to the creativity and workmanship of that time. Gentle dove gray freshwater pearls and jewel toned emerald green Biwa pearls are hand linked to create a dainty necklace with green onyx bezeled connectors stationed along the chain. The unique pendant is a shell-shaped chatelaine perfume bottle (with original cork stopper), embossed with miniscule stars and a collection of amulets suspended from the original finger ring - including an Eiffel Tower and Napoleonic bee - as a nod to history. The pendant scent bottle can be easily removed from the necklace to allow for versatility with the design. The fact that this charming and fragile étuis has survived the years in such good condition is remarkable. 30 inches long / 4.125 inch pendant drop X 1.02 inches wide.
