Twisted T-Bar on an English made Double Curb chain. The chunky Double Curb chain gives this T-Bar a real vintage feel.
T-bars date back centuries and were the earliest form of connection between the pocket watch chain and the wearer's shirt. They were designed to be passed through a buttonhole.
The T-bar has been re-imagined many times over, and is such a classic part of jewellery's history, its unusual shape lends itself well to layering with other pieces. A versatile jewellery staple in my book.
This piece is Hallmarked on one end of the T-bar and comes with an authenticity hallmark card, detailing the marks and their meaning.
Double Curb chain with lobster lock fastening: 17.5 inches (43cm)
Pendant: Width 2.2cm Height: 0.8cm (8mm)
Silver: Solid sterling silver.
Gold: Solid sterling silver - plated in responsibly sourced and ethical 24ct Gold.
My gold pieces are classed as Vermeil, this means that the base metal is Sterling Silver and there has been 2.5 microns of 24ct gold deposited on its surface. I plate my rings to 5 microns as they see more wear and tear.
Vermeil gold is the hardest wearing gold plate as it has such a high minimum deposit required. However it will still naturally fade over time, especially in high pressure areas such as where the jump ring sits on the chain. Please read how to prolong the life of your gold jewellery here. I offer a re-plating service which you can find out about here.
