Jan Michaels' Aventurine & Amazonite Locket Necklace
Availability: Almost gone!
Our artisan, Jan, masterfully creates this timeless oval locket necklace pairing intricate metal stampings and filigree into each locket and adorns with semi-precious stones specially selected from exotic lands. Our locket necklace, a limited edition of 80, features four working lockets, green aventurine, amazonite and moss agate semi-precious stones. Lockets have been around since the days of Queen Elizabeth I when the images inside were painted by hand. Carrying images of loved ones became more popular with the advent of photography in the 1800's. They reached their height during the reign of Victoria after Prince Albert presented his wife with, an eight locket bracelet so she could keep their eight offspring close to her at all times. Perhaps this is why most lockets to this day are Victorian in style. Each piece is handcrafted, uno alla volta, from the heart and hands of the artisan; no two are exactly alike. Necklace measures 16in. long with 3in. extender and a lobster clasp.
