Contessa - Vintage Assemblage Italian Necklace

Like this item?

Add it to your favorites to revisit it later.


I found this enchanting little Italian souvenir decorative framed print in an antigue store and knew that I had to have it.

An unusual ornate brass frame encloses a sweet print of a feminine young woman. This one of a kind necklace is created with vintage chunky mother of pearl beads, faceted nuggets of aquamarine and citrine, aquamarine rondelles, and brass chain. The frame says "made in Italy", I added an antique Italian brass holy medal of roses, and another aquamarine rondelle to finish off the back. (The hook clasp was also made in Itlay)

The frame (pendant) is sealed under it's original glass and measures 2 3/4 inches by 2 inches. The total length of this necklace is 18 inces, and is extendable.
