The bone china vintage cabochon anchoring this necklace depicts a dandy gentleman proposing to his lover. Romantic silhouettes of 18th-century couples were trendy motifs for costume jewelry in both the 1920s and the 1960s.
The vintage picture button hangs from an authentic, antique, one-of-a-kind, Victorian-era jet glass button.
Every antique button is a one and only, chosen just for you, and so will not be identical to the image.

Small antique jet glass button, circa 1880-1890
