My version of the necklace worn by Catherine Parr in a portrait displayed in the National Portrait gallery, London; oil on panel, unknown artist, late 16th Century.
From my Tudor collection.
The necklace measures 16 inches and is crafted with antique gold replica ouches with red and black crystal stones inset. There are 17 ouches in total with brass gold and faux glass pearl beading in between. These are set on a strong beading wire with lobster clasp and extension chain if you wish to wear it longer.
The pendant is a further 70 mm in length. It has an ornate golden setting adorned with gemstones. There is a natural black agate round gemstone and an oval Grade A red agate cabochon. From the pendant hangs a faux pearl drop with filigree bead cap.
Catherine Parr, sometimes alternatively spelled Katherine, Katheryn, Kateryn or Katharine (c. August 1512 – 5 September 1548, was Queen of England and Ireland (1543–47) as the last of the six wives of King Henry VIII, and the final queen consort of the House of Tudor. She married him on 12 July 1543, and outlived him by a year and eight months.
