Cheapside Hoard Replica Elizabethan Necklace - Museum Reproductions
The Cheapside Hoard was an incredible find of Elizabethan & Jacobean jewelry discovered in London in 1912. It's one of the most significant collections from this period ever uncovered!
This necklace is a replica of one of the pieces found and is now held in the collections of the Museum of London.
It's made with Gold-plated enamel findings in blue and white.
The originals in the collection have no evidence of clasps, but after a discussion with a curator at the Museum of London and some portrait research, I have decided to finish this necklace with rings, as was done commonly in the 18th Century. This is conjecture on my part, but I believe this is the one of the ways these pieces were originally meant to close. You can string a ribbon through the rings and tie it closed so that it fits you perfectly!
Coordinating earrings are available here:
This item was made by the Museum Reproduction Company, which partners with Museums to recreate historical items in their collections. A portion of the sale of these items goes back to support the museums where the original pieces are kept. Made in the USA!
