A lovely upcycled necklace crafted in 9ct gold! The antique pendant to the necklace started it's life out as a bar brooch in the Victorian era, c1900! When we rescued her the pin was no longer attached so we've salvaged the charming antique bar design and recreated her into a chic modern-day necklace, adding a recent 9ct gold trace chain. The chain complements beautifully in design, heft and colour. It has been securely attached via two little rings either side allowing for a nice drape on the neckline. The pendant features a bright purplish red garnet doublet and a seed pearl either side, each resting in elevated six-pointed star profiles. There is lovely hand engraving adding further antiquity charm and a delightful scalloped border. 
The pendant bears early Australian stamps. Just visible on the reverse is a 'sheaf' to the right and '9' in the centre, alongside the makers mark, a 'square and compass' denoting Johnson and Simonsen of Melbourne, Australia. Johnson and Simonsen was one of the major Melbourne jewellery manufacturers in the early 20th century. And all the more reason to have saved her from the melting pot!

A totally unique and gorgeous gold necklace which would look great worn with jeans or a dress.
