This handmade Steampunk necklace has a pendant made from an antique Elgin pocket watch with 7 jewels on nickel-free brass chain - great unisex necklace! This is a particularly fine quality watch movement with eye-catching silver and gold contrast.

MEASUREMENTS & MATERIALS:
The chain measures approximately 18" and the pendant is approximately 1" across. The fourth photo shows an assortment of the types of watches I work with, as well as the watches in context of late Victorian photos of both men and women with pocket watch chains.

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 An emblem of a past era of craftsmanship, these mechanical watches have real or synthetic jewel bearings, originally made with ruby, garnet, diamond, and sapphire.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. Celebrate analog!

All items come in a gift box.
