This Victorian tassel pendant is a must have for any vintage collector. It is so versatile and can be worn at a choker length or on a long lariat or chain for a layered look.

This tassel is simple with some hand engraved details on the cap with 5 tassels. There are 2 tassels capped with beads, the others may have fallen off through the years.

The Victorian lariat chain can be sold separately. This chain is most likely French with beautiful cannetille work on 10 links and a cherry blossom filigree centerpiece. The bail is a hinged bail that opens and closes so that you can add more charms to it as your collection grows.

I acquired this at a shorter length and lengthened it by adding another vintage silver chain.

  • Bracelets and rings get the most wear out of all the styles of jewelry. Make sure that your jewelry is professionally cleaned and your stones checked annually.

    For gold rings, the higher the karat weight, the softer the metal will be, and the easier it will scratch. Frequent polishing is unecessary. Polishing your rings removes layers of metals and will thin it out through time.  

    The same goes with platinum, as it is a malleable and softer metal, yet denser, which makes it last longer.  Platinum is also a white metal naturally and stays white, whereas white gold is yellow that has white alloys giving it a whiter appearance, but will never be as white as platinum. 

    For high value items, typically of $1,000, it is a good idea to have your pieces insured on your homeowners policy or with a separate insurer like Jewelers Mutual.
