Material Sterling silver, glass, natural seed pearls. Symbolism in antique and vintage jewelry is common, yet it can be hard to spot if you dont know what youre looking for. Often, specific natural gemstones, flowers, birds, and motifs like stars and anchors were imbued with meanings that have fallen out of present-day societys collective memory. To appreciate the power of symbols in antique jewelry is to imagine what it would have been like to wear the piece and step back into history. Miniature versions of classic antique and vintage styles are especially collectable.
Not only are these small pieces charming, but they also require an advanced level of craftsmanship to render all the tiny details. _gsrx_vers_1233 GS 8.1.1 (1233).The item "Antique Victorian Edwardian Sterling Silver Seed Pearl Paste Cross Pendant Charm" is in sale since Monday, November 9, 2020.
