Jewelry Sale oOo Parlor House Pendant oOo Stunning Rocky Butte Jasper and Sterling Silver necklace by JessieJems

Was 182.00

"Parlor houses” were elegantly furnished and boasted the most beautiful and desirable women. These better establishments were run by a female owner called a "madam.” This was usually an older woman who had "paid her dues” during her younger years.

The running of a parlor house was a profitable business and the most successful madams were extremely adept business women.

First-class places set a good table and prided themselves on their cellars, offering choice cigars, bonded bourbon, and the finest liquors and wines. Customers could often enjoy champagne suppers and sing with the girls around the piano. In very high class parlor houses, the women could only be seen by appointment.

Some of the more famous madams charged as much as $1,000 for their services, such as Cripple Creek, Colorado's famous madam, Pearl de Vere.

Girls were always expected to be dressed in an elegant and fashionable manner with jewels to match.

This beautiful sterling silver pendant is set with an amazing Rocky Butte Jasper, embellished with sterling silver leaves, iolite and amethyst. The chain is adorned with faceted amethyst beads and silver petals. The pendant itself measures 2 3/4" long including the ring at the top and is just of an inch from side to side. The chain is sterling silver, oxidized and measures 17" long. The chain can be adjusted up or down, just let me know.
