Wyvern Bling. Vintage Heraldic Necklace. 1940s.
This fascinating vintage necklace has a story, no doubt. It is a power necklace, to be sure. A weighty pendant featuring twin wyverns over crossed swords and a Maltese cross, crowned with a Fluer-de-lis and tiny crown, hangs from a thick chain. This piece was once gold plated but has now mellowed and aged to a cool, antique brass-tone.
Necklace measures 16 3/4" (42cm) long and the pendant is 2 1/2" (6cm) long and 2 1/4" (5.5cm) wide.
