This is a very large, very bold, very weighty statement pendant! There's so much silver wrapped in its shape. All from silver sheet, no casting. So many curves, twists and wraps; so many hollows, crevices, indents. It's both robust and delicate, fluid but with bold brooding breadth, light and shine flooding through that deep Victorian oxide, all held together with a beautifully sensual opening at the centre. Poetic, sinuous, brutal and entrancing - this is a piece of breadth, feel, allure and pure artistry. Hung on an 18 inch belcher chain. 45mm long x 30mm wide and 20mm deep.
Hallmarked consisting of Maker's mark, Traditional Fineness mark, Millesimal Fineness mark, Assay Office mark and Date Letter mark.
'Gothic Shell' pendant
Try to avoid wearing your jewellery when swimming, playing sport, gardening, doing DIY or in contact with chemicals, such as household cleaning agents, etc. If you are storing your jewellery for any length of time, wrap it in tissue/cloth and seal in an airtight bag to prevent oxidation. When cleaning jewellery, never use commercial chemical jewellery-cleaners, which invariably weaken the metal and can cause damage. Simply wash in mild soapy water, rinse and wipe clean. Then lightly polish with a soft cloth (a glasses-lense cloth is ideal).
