Regal Button Pearl Necklace
This beautiful necklace is inspired by British artist George Gower's (1530-1596) Elizabethan court style painting Lady Philipa Coningsby, in the collection of the Indianapolis Museum of Art. The "chain" is composed of peacock (a kind of iridescent blue/purple/grey color) freshwater pearls and rectangles of the gemstone iolite. The pendant (1" in diameter) is made of silver-plate over pewter with a peacock freshwater pearl dangle that measures 1/4" in diameter.
The necklace measures 16" with a 2" hypo allergenic surgical steel extender.
