Description

Late 1700’s gilded brass pocket watch balance parts have been linked together to form a lacey, unique statement necklace, juxtaposed and made modern with the contemporary sterling chain. Linked as they originally were in the mid 1800s (when they were already 50+ years old!), these beautiful once-functional pieces had become popular in jewelry designs since advancing pocket watch mechanisms no longer needed them in the “new technology”. Even when they were in use, they were hidden away inside the watch case. Each of the seven 1.25” pieces is unique in its design – with flourish, floral, and even figural details.

18” overall + 2” extender
