High Fashion Steampunk Necklace Pocket Watch Necklace Ornate Special Occasion Bridal Clockwork Pearls Steampunk Necklace Handmade by Compass Rose Design

This elegant steampunk necklace is made with two extremely high quality antique watch movements. The larger Elgin is one of the more beautiful watch movements I have encountered, full of guilloche engraving designs. The serial number on the movement dates it to the 1920. This watch has been impeccably maintained for more than a century. You'll feel beautiful wearing this statement necklace :) This antique pocket watch movement has beautifully etched designs - a testament of loving craftsmanship finally meant to be worn in the open! I set this pocket watch on a detailed brass filigree pendant - the effect is breathtaking. This is a truly beautiful heirloom quality piece.

ABOUT THE DESIGN:
The Victorian era was a bridge between old traditions and new technologies. At the 1851 Great Exhibition in London, Queen Victoria and Prince Albert received the first mechanical keyless wind watches, making pocket watches and watch fobs popular for both men and women until the mid 20th century. While pocket watches had been worn for more than a century, wrist watches were introduced around 1900, called "wristlets" were introduced, in part because of the development of a more affordable jewel bearings production process, which made smaller, more accurate watches possible. Assumed to be a passing fad, wrist watches caught on and were most popular in the 1920s and 1930s, which is why most of the watches I work with are Art Deco from this period. An emblem of a past era of craftsmanship, these mechanical watches have real or synthetic jewel bearings, originally made with ruby, garnet, diamond, and sapphire. Many watches have the name of the watch maker, intricate tooling or design work, seen only when the watch was repaired, cleaned, and maintained. Wear History!

MEASUREMENTS & MATERIALS:
* These watches will no longer tell you the time - they are in the upcycled part of their lives
* The sturdy brass chain measures approximately 17" with an adjustable clasp
* The watch movements are fairly substantial, but the thicker brass chain works really well and the necklace is comfortable and wearable.
* The lower pendant measures 1.75" in diameter and the total pendant hangs about 3.5" from the chain.
