This beautiful long pearl necklace features a 1896 British threepence and luxe keshi pearl and gold fill bead drop. It can be worn long or wrapped to create a double layered necklace.
The British threepence was know as a threepence or threepenny bit and was first used in England during the reign of Edward VI (1547-53). All threepences minted from 1816 to 1919 were made of sterling silver and those produced between 1920 and 1946 were half silver, half nickel. These coins were often made into bracelets by soldiers serving in WWII to send home to their sweethearts. This coin is from one of these bracelets.
The total length of the necklace is 112cm (56cm from the neck) with a 6cm coin and pearl drop.
