Look like a queen in our best-selling Tudor inspired necklace!
Cross-hatch, lozenge or diamond patterns were very popular in Tudor and Elizabethan England (as in contemporary Europe) in architecture, decorative arts, fashion and jewellery and formed the basis for our exquisite and feminine necklace, which is made by hand-plaiting 3 strands of 7mm White pearls alternating with gold plated tubes. Labour intensive but so worth the end result!
