This is the classic Y necklace, first appearing during the time of Victorian society, a staple accessory that graced necklines by day and night. Four ovals set with premium crystal alternate with delicate curlicues, finishing with a tiny metal bead chain. Burnished bronze. Made at Sweet Romance in our Los Angeles Studios.

 

Shelley's Notes: Fashion of the mid 19th century emphasized a deep open neckline and off-the-shoulder sleeves. It was a veritable canvas for the display of necklaces. Polite Victorian society had a strict code of behavior with regard to in-person visits. Going to see someone didn't mean dropping by without notice. Without an appointment, vists occurred only on specific 'calling' days. Those looking for courtship sought to blend a visit with this more personal objective. A lady receiving a preferred gentleman caller would be carefully groomed and might have worn a sparkly "necklet," as it was called, to draw attention to her physical beauty.
