About

Early 19th century cut steel necklace. Dove and olive branch motif. Cut steel push clasp. Measuring a generous 16.5". It is difficult for the camera to capture the dark sparkle this necklace gives. Circa 1840, found in England.

Cut steel was an effective substitution for early rose cut diamonds. Its popularity endured well into the 19th century as it was considered appropriate for second stage mourning adornment.
