Dramatic Sterlling Silver Rosebud Necklace
SOLD with thanks

Four rows of bud-like links give this particular silver necklace dramatic appeal. It is the widest Birmingham collar we have discovered. Each link is etched with a small bud or star. Versatile and reversible, the bud design was a popular Victorian motif. The woven look of horizontal links on the reverse is simple in comparison and makes reference to the industrial Revolution. Symmetry and proportion give this collar grand presence. It is the widest Victorian necklace we have owned. Admirers are surprised at the modern appearance of a piece such as this that states its age at approximately 140 years. Victorian silver jewelry was well made and is prized for its beauty and adaptability to day or evening costumes. It will be admired and happily enjoyed for another 140 years. England c.1870 Measures 18 3/4 inches long by 1 3/4 inches deep.
