As our signature design Festoon Necklace is beautifully hand made from antique and vintage materials. Imperfections due to age are a natural characteristic we believe lends to the inherent beauty of our heirloom creations.
At the center of this festoon is a wonderful rare antique Circa 1800's Georgian period French Sparrow with Persian turquoise and ruby eye. Made of sterling silver with rose gold vermeil it is joined at the center in a hanging bouquet which includes an antique English sterling medal with delicate hand engraving and a bronze French religious medal. We think Mother of Pearl is the perfect update to replace classic strands of pearls, so we have generously used seven strands of this unusual flat round French rosary beading in slightly varying sizes then interspersed mother of pearl carved crosses into the strands. One beaded chain has an Antique English sterling silver engraved buckle placed down the left side of the strands.
Our own classic bronze figural clasp makes the measurement of the shortest strand of this one of a kind seven strand necklace 19 1/4 long.

For centuries people have chosen many types of “tokens” to express their love and affection for special people in their lives. From coins to thimbles and jewelry, they all share sentimental symbolism. The charms and trinkets women have treasured and passed down through families represent their children, genealogy, anniversaries, birthdays, family traditions, and of course love.
Our one of a kind, festoon necklaces are beautifully designed and crafted in layers combining vintage mother of pearl beading, antique chain, lockets, charms, fobs and pendants that date as far back as C. 1800.
We encourage you to add your own special family treasures to your necklace as time goes on. Send it to us, and we will take care of it for you!
