This elegant necklace features an orphaned vintage earring set with unusual stones that are both red-brown and aqua at the same time. These stones are called sappharines and were made in imitation of a stone manufactured in Victorian times which combined molten gold and sapphire glass (they were called sapphirets).

I combined this gorgeous earring with lustrous Japanese-made pearl beads that I sourced from old warehouse stock.

This necklace is:

  • ethically and sustainably made
  • one of a kind
  • made with a 1950s clip-back earring and pearl beads made circa 1980s
  • 46.5 cm along the neck edge (refer to my necklace guide for more information)
  • finished with a hook clasp

Handmade in my Melbourne workshop, this necklace contains vintage repurposed materials which show signs of their age in a deepened patina and minor wear. I think that is what gives them so much charm.
