1820s Early Cut Steel Necklace

About

A crowning glory of design, this cut steel necklace shimmers like diamonds, in available light as it did originally in the early 1800's. Serves dressy occasions or denim shirts and blue jeans by bringing a unique sense of style with its varied cuts of steel, swirls on the center plaque and to the sides of the center. You can easily see the design but not the romantic glimmer as photos can do just so much. Silver haired ladies, and brunettes are thrilled with cut steel jewelry which enhances the beauty of both.
Cut steel is completely hand designed and made in the early years before electricity made life easier. Only the early pieces contained many shapes and sizes of steel "diamonds". The painstaking hand work was appreciated from first sight and cut steel was immediately in demand and valued highly. This necklace is in excellent condition.
