  • Antique Book Chain Earrings
    Quick shop

    Description

    These earrings feature gold-filled links from a 19th century Victorian book chain necklace and an antique hand-faceted emerald green glass button bead, made in Northern Bohemia circa 1910.  

    Details

    • 1 3/4” long
    • one-of-a-kind

    Materials

    • gold-filled book chain necklace links
    • faceted glass button
    • 14K gold-filled ear wires with genuine garnets [+ $10] or gold-plated surgical steel with 3mm ball.

    Origin Story

    The book chain necklace design features links shaped like the bindings of books, and was a popular style during the Victorian era.  This necklace style re-emerged throughout the 20th century during various Victorian revival periods, particularly during the late 1930's and 40's.  It is a design that continues to evolve and inspire even in the 21st century.

    The glass buttons were produced circa 1910 in Northern Bohemia, a region in the north of the Czech Republic that – since the 14th century – has been renowned for its beautiful jewelry and button manufacture.  I purchased these beautiful buttons from a vendor in Prague.
