Stunning EXTASIA elaborate iron cross statement necklace with ornate chain design. Call it steampunk, call it mourning jewelry, call it high gothic, you will be wearing a unique piece of history, and looking smashing. Knowing the lengths that Extasia goes to, I would imagine that this is from a antique mold or a mold made from an antique piece.
The first influence is the Berlin iron works period. Aristocrats were asked to donate their gold and jewels to support the war effort, and detailed iron jewelry became all the rage.
There is some great information on this online. Following that is the heavy mourning of the Victorian era. Ive seen similar pieces in vulcanite or perhaps, opinions differ, gutta percha. The cross is made from a riot of roses.
The elaborate chain is fantastically detailed. Clarification: I have checked the cross with a magnet, and it did not stick (as all of the cast iron in the house did); so this is probably a mixed metal, not made out of iron, but in the style of it. Please let me know if you have any questions. Lots of fun to photograph, even more fun to wear.
