About

Think of lace made from iron when you view this Berlin Iron necklace with links of leaves, flowers and frills. It is rare to be able to purchase this jewelry. It can be found mostly in museum collections, at times, only in fragments. Made in the Franco Prussian war when Napoleon's forces invaded Germany and fought on until the German treasury called to its wealthy for support. Only those at court and aristocracy owned jewelry. They were asked to give their gold for iron. This is an example of jewels given for their patriotism as a badge of honor. The Berlin Iron jewelry created a desire in Europe for pieces to be brought back for the wealthy. This necklace is in excellent condition. I do believe the clasp was changed before I purchased it. The necklace is 18 1/2 inches long. Height is 2 inches at center plaque. Weight is 41.5 grams.
