Antique Griffin Cameo Gold Chain Pearl Nereids Necklace
This piece is truly special, crafted from multiple antique gold chains by our designer Lisa Salzer. Victorian curb and rolo chains of varying scales from antique pocket watches combine with a hand wire-wrapped pearl chain, and a one-of-a-kind antique trigger clasp. The central pendant is a rare hand-carved cameo depicting a Neried, or sea-nymph goddesses and protector of the sea's rich bounty and sailors and fishermen. Nerieds were said to come to the aid of those in distress. This cameo is all the more amazing for the two Griffins that pull her chariot through the ocean, all hand-carved with expert care. One-of-a-kind.
