Product Description: This Tudor Pearl pendant is made from a faux drop pearl and is supplied on a gold chain. The pendant is mounted on a fold-over information card, which has a portrait image of Elizabeth I on the front. On the reverse is a brief history of jewellery in Tudor times.
Information: Jewellery was a big part of Tudor fashion for those who were rich and important because it showed both their wealth and status. The most common types of jewellery were rings, brooches, bracelets, necklaces and earrings. These were made from gold, silver and bronze.
Pearls were very popular and were worn by both Anne Boleyn and her daughter Elizabeth I. Pearls were worn as a string, as a single pearl or a combination of both. This is illustrated in the front image of Queen Elizabeth I who has single pearls sewn into her dress.
