The bookchain is comprised of super lovely 6-petal flower links. At the end there's this oversized antique spring clasp revealing its age.The necklace features a single-sided Etruscan revival locket pendant with a natural grey seed pearl centered in the front. On the back there's a black and white photo of a young dressed up gentleman smiling. My personal favorite parts are those little gold flowers. Wearing it around your neck makes you feel happy, sweet, nice and elegant.
Anyone will look attractive wearing it. Very good vintage condition given it's roughly 150 years old. It has been lightly cleaned to bring out its vibrant original gold color. It'd make a great gift to someone you value or an unique addition to your jewelry collection. Not to mention it's something worth passing down through generations as a family heirloom.
A little backstory on Etruscan revival jewelry. The Etruscan civilization is the modern name given to a powerful and wealthy civilization of ancient Italy from 900 BC to 100 BC. Their culture has been forgotten until the discovery of their tombs in Italy in early 1800s. The fascination of their culture led to what's called Etruscan revival in mid Victorian era during which jewelers made jewelry with design styles resembled the real Etruscan objects from 900 to 100 BC. Bookchain: 20 1/2 inch long.Pendant: 1 1/2 inch long (excluding bail). 6/16 inch thick (from top of pearl on front to back). This bookchain necklace is made with a mixture of three-color gold and gold filled parts with purity ranging from 9k to 10k. Green Gold - Classic antique spring clasp.
