The Piece London
Iconic Cleopatra Fringe Necklace
Even the most simplified understanding of Cleopatra's life makes it easy to understand the two millennia long fascination with her legacy: standing at the intersection between gender and power, on her own terms, up to and including the very end.
So it is little wonder that the jewellery world has drawn inspiration from this iconic figure time and time again.
Enter this exceptionally high quality fringe necklace in 9ct yellow gold, dating to the 1980s.
Made in Italy by UnoAErre, this flattering necklace is formed of squared bars, in alternating textures of sleek and patterned gold, topped by two rows of golden beads.
The bars themselves are hollow yet the substantial 27g weight of this necklace helps it to sweep effortlessly with perfect, liquid and silky ease across the collarbones. The fringe flows the entire way around the neck with a cleverly and beautifully made concealed box clasp & safety clip.
Can you imagine this piece with a simple black dress and an up-do? Oof.
With full hallmarks showing its import to the UK in 1986, as well as a full set of hallmarks & makers marks denoting the designer UnoAErre and the location it was made: Arezzo, Italy.
This necklace is presented in excellent condition with no signs of wear.
