Mourning Jewelry - Adhuc tempus neckpiece - Victorian Style

This collection is very special to me, as it is inspired not also by the Victorian Era jewelry, but also in myself, in my late feelings. Mourning jewelry existed since Renaissance but was introduced by Queen Victoria I to fashion when Prince Albert of England died in 1861. The court wore mourning attires for years, with paired black jewelry.

This collection is all designed in black, with chandelier crystals, and central cameos introducing latin phrases about life's fleetingness and skull optical illusions.

This piece's central cameo has the inscription Adhuc Tempus, which means "there is still time", and was usually found in sun dials. It is made of black fringe, faceted crystal beads, golden and black and chandelier black crystals. It ties to your neck with a satin ribbon.

This neckpiece is a statement piece yet very wearable, appropriate for any outfit, vintage inspired or not.

I could not have wished for a more perfect item or a more perfect transaction. Paloma, the lovely lady who makes these treasures, could not have been more helpful or more kind. I am so happy to have found her and Ecraftic, and I cannot recommend her and her beautiful works of art enough. This brooch is one of my most treasured possessions; I adore it <3

Hi Paloma! I received it during this week! Thank you! Frankly, I was expecting to get some more brilliant eye-popping colours, as the colours in my necklace look somehow like autumn colours (if you know what I mean, dull shades), but, I still love this necklace because the design is SO unique and nobody else has ever done anything like it! Can you believe, folks? A CIRCUS writing you can wear around your neck? That's unique! So, all in all, I think this jewels stylist deserves success, only the colours should be improved a bit! Love.
