Victorian tiara necklace conversion – SOLD
So this item has seen a few changes in its lifetime. It started out as what would have been a very elaborate tiara. We purchased it from the descendants of its original owner who upon her death, the immediate family dismantled the tiara and the individual sections were divided among them. This particular section was made into a brooch at some point but it really did not work for us. It is something I purchased some years ago and have been working on every now and again since then. This section seemed to work beautifully as a necklace and is fitted to a modern 9ct white gold chain to ensure its safety. The design we are left with has an unintentional art nouveau feel to it and features an articulated diamond dropper at the bottom of the piece. In a perfect word I would be selling a beautiful tiara rather than just a section of a beautiful tiara but I could not bare to see this section broken up, scrapped and the diamonds just going into stock for repairs and restoration work. A truly unique piece with a story to tell and many more decades of use for its new owner.
