We named this necklace after Lady Catherine, Mr. Darcy’s aunt in Pride and Prejudice, who is both uptight and a hopeless romantic.

Like Lady Catherine, this necklace has a two-sided personality. On one side, it flaunts a midcentury West German glass cabochon featuring a silhouette of an 18th-century couple depicted in the lush, light-hearted yet erotic style of the late Roccoco period.  

On the other side, it features a small, Victorian-era wallpaper button set in an intricate brass stamping. Wallpaper buttons are known for their detailed, evenly spaced designs, often with Asian motifs.

Every antique button is a one and only, chosen just for you, and so will not be identical to the image. 

This necklace also features a sliding clasp that enables you to adjust its length to suit any neckline. You can wear it as a choker, as a long pendant, or anywhere in between.

In this piece:

  • Antique brass wallpaper button, circa 1890
  • Cabochon featuring 18th-century couple, made in West Germany, circa 1960-1970
