Sold

777E
ThumbnailThumbnailThumbnailThumbnailThumbnailThumbnailThumbnailThumbnailThumbnailThumbnail

A very impressive large Vulcanite necklace which was made circa 1880 in the High Victorian period when everything large and over the top was in fashion. It has five cameo drops which feature classical ladies. The whole country joined the Queen in mourning for her beloved Prince Albert but decorative elements crept in to the black ensemble! This necklace is completely original and a wonderful example from that age.
