Kyanite With Georgian Crown & MOP Vinaigrette Locket - Azora Necklace
Delicate hand-linked kyanite ovals are the backdrop for this one of-a-kind Panatone 2020 Color of the Year - Classic Blue. Their translucence and dainty nature not only capture the eye, but add to the delicate and unique nature of the vinaigrette locket. Inside the locket, a scrolled screen can be opened to allow a scented piece of wool or cotton to be added. The back of the vinaigrette is a testament to the workmanship of this historic era with a hand-carved Mother-of-Pearl disc adding texture and iridescence. In Georgian times, this darling vinaigrette might have held a scented piece of wool to ward off the noxious odors of the street or a drop of ammonia to revive the gentler sex, who might be inclined to fainting. Either way, the history of these precious vinaigrette lockets adds a rich history and provenance - certain to entrance anyone who might ask.
25.5 inches long / locket 1.16 inches diameter.
