QUINN - Lavaliere Necklace

QUINN - Lavaliere Necklace

A single crown mounted, c.1890 Victorian Era Button with an intricate raised floral design and etched silver finding create the pendulous focal in this Lavaliere* Style Necklace. (Button will vary but will always be beautiful...I have hundreds of options!!) The chain is ornately patterned, antique silver Rollo with a contrasting vintage warm bronze U-link center. A generous 3" extension offers several length options. (My suggestion...order a bit shorter than you normally would. You can always wear it longer given the 3" extension.) Limited Edition of two.

*A lavaliere (or lavalliere) is an item of jewelry consisting of a pendant, sometimes with one focal, pendulous and centered from a necklace. The style was popularized by the Duchesse de la Vallière, a mistress of King Louis XIV of France. A lavaliere can be recognized most for its drop (that usually consists of a stone and/or a chandelier type of drop) which is attached to the chain and not attached by a bail.

* The center focal button and setting is 1" large
* The 5mm link chain has a 3" extension.
