Elizabeth 1st replica hair necklace - The Rainbow Portrait - Queen Elizabeth reenactment - Tudor - The Golden Age
This hair necklace is a replica of the one worn by Queen Elizabeth 1st in the "Rainbow Portrait".
'Perhaps the most colourful Tudor portrait, full of inventive iconography.' Elizabeth holds a rainbow with the inscription “Non sine sole iris”, “No rainbow without the sun”, reminding viewers only the Queen’s wisdom can ensure peace and prosperity.'
The necklace is made with faux glass pearls and a central gold filigree pendant set with a diamante black crystal and a drop pearl with filigree gold bead. There are hair clips to secure the piece into your hair.
I also make matching earrings and the hair pearls shown worn by Elizabeth in this portrait.
