Eye-Catching Long, Burgundy Silk Chain Compliments Ancient Roman Glass & Jade

SKU: 2178
    • This rich, burgundy red, handmade silk/polyester long chain, on which my silver name label is attached, supports a contrasting array of elements.

    • The highlight is of course that gorgeous, iridescent, green Roman glass shard. This has been set in 18ct gold plate over brass. It has two sides (photos illustrate the two views), each equally good. Ancient Roman glass has been uncovered in Afghanistan for a number of years. And this shard comes from Afghanistan. It measures 5cm (2”) long by 5cm (2”) wide.

    • Above it and swallowing up the shard’s bail, is a vintage, hand crafted brass globe bead (25mm) from West Africa.

    • A small gold on silver Afghan bead (9mm) sits in the large hole of the globe bead.

    • And lastly, a cylinder (9mm) of jade, in a good, mottled, apple green colour, finishes the design.

    • The necklace comes, like all my necklaces, with its own colour co-ordinated silk brocaded pouch bag, made by a Shanghai tailor.

    • The necklace is 52cm (20.5”) long, from the top of the chain down to the bottom of the Roman glass shard.
