Marie de Medici Renaissance Necklace
Lovely necklace is patterned after a girdle belt worn by Marie de Medici, wife of Henry IV of France, in a portrait by Alessandro Allori. Marie lived from 1573 to 1642 (see in my Renaissance portrait gallery). The necklace has colorful acrylic cabochons cabochons on 1 5/8 inch antiqued brass filigree settings, with a center front filigree of 2 1/2 inches. The pendant drop, consisting of the two large filigrees, is 5 1/2 inches long including the large pearl teardrop. Czech glass pearls are 10mm. The necklace is adjustable.
The necklace is also similar to one seen in the Portrait of a Woman by Lucas the Younger c.1550.
Matching jewelry can be found in my other Renaissance jewelry categories, including the matching girdle.
