Renaissance Bridle Link Necklace

Renaissance Bridle Link Necklace

The Renaissance (French for “Rebirth”) was a period of re-awakening for intellect and art that swept through Europe between the 14th and 17th centuries. The Renaissance brought Europe out of the Middle Ages and helped usher in the Age of Enlightenment in the 18th century. Our jewelry is adapted from an element found on ornate bridle regalia included in the elaborate full dress uniform of Russian army horsemen. The original leather strap is covered in a rich crimson velvet which has been further embellished with elegant gold and silver elements. 

Materials: Pewter with antique gold finish
Length: 20 inches
