Need your something blue? And something old?
Look no further than this beautiful diamante princess necklace and adorn yourself in crystals, rhinestones, glass and cubic zirconia. Did you know that the Western saying of "something blue" as part of wedding attire was borroewed from the Middle Eastern blye eye bead, an ornament poularized by the Phoenicians (ca. 1500-300 BCE) as a charm to protect the wearer against the evil eye or the ill intentions of others? It has been passed on and reinterpreted in Old English tradition as part of the tradition for brides to wear "something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue."
This gorgeous sparkling art deco diamante princess necklace was bought from an estate sale in Ontario. Condition is worn, no missing or tarnished stone, each rhinestone and crystal still sparkles and reflects beautifully under light. The largest stone is Cubic Zirconia, while the rest of the stones are rhinestones.
The necklace measures at 16". There are 12 crystal sapphire blue accents that adorn the centre of the piece, and a large pear shaped Cubic Zirconia that measures at 1.5 cm by 2 cm.
Included as a freebie is a sapphire brooch with diamante stones surrounding the bud for petals, and tiny sapphire blue stones as accent. It was bought seperately from a different estate sale but has been added here as a bonus.
