Scalloped Cut Steel Necklace

Cut steel was valuable from the inception of its use in jewelry. This labor intensive example was completely executed by hand. Georgian period cut steel contains various sizes of nail heads. Each separate nail head has been multi- faceted like a tiny gem, polished to a shine, then riveted to a back frame that was punched with tiny holes to the jewelers pattern. Small and smaller floral clusters, swags, and knots of cut steel rivets that symbolize eternity, culminate with teardrops of steel in a mirror polish. Each of the three pendant sections are loosely heart shaped. In daylight or evening, faceted steel makes a romantic necklace that flickers like diamonds. Like Berlin Iron, is a rarity at this moment in time. Length 16 1/2 in. Height of most central loveknot is 1 10/16 in.
