You don't have to be a bibliophile to appreciate this gorgeous book chain necklace!
Fashioned in brass and then plated with a thick layer of 14k gold, this fabulous chain gets its name from the shape of its links, which resemble little books. Making this necklace a little extra special are the beautiful, raised 4 leaf clovers between every link.
Clovers were a popular motif in jewelry in the 1800s. They were thought to help the wearer ward off demons, hardships and misfortune as well as serve as protection from evil spirits. Clovers were also said to bring the owner success, harmony and many blessings.
Necklace fastens with a large spring ring.
Condition: Very Good
Some of the plating is starting to come off of the book chain links and there is one small area where the tarnish is more noticeable. (See photos) The clovers are all very bright and shiny. The second clover in from the clasp has a chip in the gold plate that is only noticeable under very close inspection. Sill a lovely piece. Priced accordingly.
