Crowned Ave Maria Necklace


Shipping to United States: Free

For your consideration, an incredibly lovely and ornate sterling silver pendant on freshwater pearl necklace created by the artist.
The handmade pendant is of a Victorian-style Ave Maria monogram encircled with crown atop the pendant and a single pearl below.
This necklace creates one of the unique pieces in the Sacré series from theRDBcollection.
Limited-edition adornment with a traditional design in a fresh artisan style.

Inspired by my photography of religious iconography around the South, particularly New Orleans.
My decades of collecting statuary, ex votos, medals, paintings, cards and more of Mary also provided a muse for this piece.

By popular demand and many requests, I'm going to bring a few of my jewelry art pieces in to the shop here for a limited time. Usually RDB jewelry inspired by my Southern "universe" and fine art photography work can only be purchased by commission or in gallery purchases.

•The pendant is almost 1.50 inches in diameter and is sterling silver
•Sterling pendant is made in the 1800s style.
•The necklace measures around 20 inches long.
•The fine freshwater pearls alternate with the sterling wire-wrapping which is done by hand.
•The necklace also has a sterling RDB name tag as a drop with a small pearl found near the clasp.
•It is lightweight and comfortable for wearing all day.

All fine jewelry comes in a lovely two-sided suede drawstring jewelry bag with the RDB collection logo on it. Perfect for protecting and storing your RDB handmade piece. You can also use it to polish your jewelry or carry it when traveling.

CROWNED GRACE necklace is from my Sacré series of art & adornments by theRDBcollection.
