Grace the Neckline in Georgian Berlin Iron Garlands

$7,800

About

From the early early 1800's, during the Franco Prussian War, Cameos of famous men were framed in gold and linked to iron chains that fell gracefully on the neck in garlands. The gold and iron combination is rare for the time as gold was what was needed to support the war with Napoleon. People and court and wealthy land owners and aristocrats were the only part of the population that owned gold jewelry or gold. As an act of loyalty and to help save the nation, they were asked to turn their gold over to the government. To honor their loyalty, German foundries created iron jewelry for the donors. This is the history of this necklace. It is thrilling to own a piece of history from the period and beautiful to wear one. This necklace has survived 220 years in perfect condition. That is passion! 17 1/2 inches long
