Helena Snakenborg Tudor Portrait Replication Cotiere Chain Necklace
Old World "bling" at its finest! This replication neck chain is a spot-on match for its inspirational original, consisting of decorative large metal chain links, plated jump rings, and antiqued 7mm bali-style melon beads with tiny 4mm metallic rocaille beads hand-strung onto sturdy metal-plated wires. Made versatile by its length, this necklace can be worn wrapped around the neck multiple times, or shaped into flowing drapes by way of a few dress pins or fancy jeweled brooches. Longer lengths are perfectly suitable for any period man's ensemble!
This longer length necklace, called a "cotiere" in Renaissance times, can be worn alone, or paired with a shorter carcanet (choker-length) necklace to make a matching set. Cotieres were typically tucked into a lady's bodice.
