Vintage Carved Shell Cameo Convertible Repurposed Necklace - Bridal Wedding Jewelry, Rosary Beads, Pearls, Sterling Silver by JryenDesigns. Layaway is available.

I really like things that I can use in multiple ways like a 2 for 1. I've designed this necklace so it can be worn multiple different ways - it's like a 5 for 1 !

This necklace design is made from vintage jewelry components. This necklace has three chain sections. The crystal glass strand is made from vintage rosary beads. These beads are clear and beautifully faceted to reflect the light nicely. They are attached together with their original brass color wire. I've attached a silver finish link chain to the crystal bead chain (which is a shorter length) and wire wrapped 7 small cultured pearls within using Sterling Silver wire. I've included a third chain in this design that is made of Sterling Silver and is a delicate chain. This Sterling Silver chain can be worn with the other two or detached and worn alone with the cameo or use it to attach one of your own personal pendants. You can also remove this Sterling Silver chain from the other two and wear the cameo pendant with the pearl and glass bead chains.

The cameo is a hand carved vintage estate shell cameo showing the side bust of a woman. This shell cameo is bezel set into a silver metal frame and has no issues. I believe this metal frame is likely Sterling Silver but there is no stamp indicating this. I've attached this cameo pendand to a Sterling Silver lobster style closure to allow for the penant to be worn on the crystal chain or to be placed on the single Sterling Silver chain or to not be worn with this group of chains at all.

So as you can see, this beautiful repurposed assemblage necklace has multiple ways to be worn. The closure is a Sterling Silver toggle and I've included an accent dangling section at the back.

Measurements: The single sterling chain measures 16 1/2" in length. The necklace measures 18 1/2". The cameo hangs an additional 1 5/8" in length from the center. The cameo measures 1" by 3/4 across.

Condition: Overall excellent vintage condition elements with new Sterling Silver toggle closure.
