18th Century Style Collet Necklace - Large Oval
This style of collet necklace has been specifically designed for use with 18th Century as it mimics the very short lengths of 18th Century (and 17th century!) where the necklace is finished with a ribbon instead of a clasp. These necklaces were worn high and tight on the neck and this allows them to fit more snugly than the longer 19th century styles.
This style of necklace is also made with setting attached along bars (unlike many of my other styles which attach with jump rings) which keeps the stones closer together - also a common 18th century style. This necklace has the stone arranged vertically as was often seen in the 18th century, for a dense and luxurious look!
This necklace is 13" long and is finished with loops, which you tie closed with a ribbon of your choice. Ribbon is not included, but I have several colors of silk ribbon available for purchase in the millinery section of my shop here: https://www.damesalamode.com/collections/the-millinery-shop
These stones are 18x13mm each and are available in a variety of colors - see photo for available options. Note that this necklace may be customized in other colors. Please contact me for requests!
May also be mounted on ruched ribbon or lace for a more luxurious look!
