Why You'll Love It. Take a closer look at this antique, unmistakably Victorian pendant, as it tells a tale of forever, and how bonds cannot be untied through its infinity loop design.
Its unique silhouette and silver setting are enhanced by the addition of a niello finish with tiny etched stars that shimmer in a bright rose gold hue. Bright patina with minimal surface wear to the setting. Fresh sheen and light surface wear, tiny bit of thinning to rose finish at the bottom of the central trefoil design element.
Niello designs are created by carving into a metallic surface (often silver) and then filling in the grooves with a black sulfur mixture. As a result, the design is typically black and silver and subtly textural, with a matte sheen. The technique allows a designer to create intricate scenes or unique patterns. A young Queen Victoria assumed her role in 1837 and her taste in jewelry quickly became culturally influential, within England and beyond. Her relationship to jewelry was enmeshed with her husband, Prince Albert, who gifted the Queen for their engagement, a snake ring, embedded with an emerald (her birthstone) in its head.
Continuing from the Georgian era and intensified by Queen Victoria. Taste, sentimental and figural jewelry was a major trend throughout the Victorian era. When certain ideas and words were deemed too forward or improper to be spoken, jewelry and symbolic meaning was used to communicate what was left unsaid. _gsrx_vers_1436 GS 9.0.5 (1436).
