    The Details...

    Although un-hallmarked, this necklace tests as silver. It features Forget-Me-Not motifs along its entire length. The necklace is set with small, round, blue paste stones and Marcasites. The necklace fastens with a box clasp and features a delicate safety chain with a bolt ring fastening too. The necklace measures 42cm in length. 

    A Short History...

    Flora and fauna were used extensively in Victorian symbolic jewellery. Perhaps the most popular flower motif was the Forget-Me-Not. It was chosen to symbolise both eternal love and remembrance. This dual meaning meant that the flower could be included in both romantic jewels and mourning jewellery.

    The jewellery within the Gemma Redmond Vintage collection has survived to this day because it has been well cared for throughout its lifetime. It is important to continue to care for the jewellery that you buy from us to ensure its continued preservation. Here are some suggestions:

    - Be sure to store your jewellery within the boxes that we provide to ensure that it is protected. This is especially important when travelling with your pieces.

    - Try not to get perfume or hairspray on your items. These liquids can damage the materials that our jewellery is made from.

    - Try not to drop your jewellery or catch your jewellery against hard surfaces. If this happens over time, the findings and fixings can loosen and wear.

    - Try not to get your jewellery wet. Some costume jewellery manufacturers utilised water soluble glue in the making of their pieces. Getting your jewellery wet could cause rhinestones and other details to fall away over time.

    - If you wish to clean your jewellery, use a soft polishing cloth or a soft brush.
