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.
