Antique Victorian Pique Tortoiseshell Cross Necklace
Introducing our antique Victorian 1890 tortoiseshell piqué cross. This exquisite heirloom piece is a testament to the fine craftsmanship of the Victorian era. The large cross is made with tortoiseshell piqué that looks stunning with its gold and silver inlay.
The pendant hangs from a delicate gold chain, which adds a touch of sophistication to the overall design. The pendant itself is a work of art, with intricate details and a beautiful contrast between the black pique work and the gold and silver dots.
Piqué (pronounced "pee-kay") is a decorative technique that involves inlaying tiny metal dots or lines into a surface to create intricate patterns or designs. This technique was popularised in the late 18th century and was particularly popular in the Victorian era. Piqué work was commonly used to decorate jewelry, particularly inlaid on top of tortoiseshell or other materials. In jewelry, the technique involves making tiny holes in the surface of the base material, such as metal, and then inserting small pieces of gold, silver or other precious metals into the holes to create a decorative design. The result is a beautiful, textured pattern that adds depth and dimension to the piece.
Height - 4.2cm / 1.6"
Width - 2.7cm / 1"
Weight - 3.9g
Chain - 45.7c m / 18"
The cross is in excellent antique condition.

Antique Victorian Pique Tortoiseshell Cross Necklace
I’m absolutely in love with my new gold locket!!!
The quality, design and size is just perfect…just as the packaging.
I had some questions and Tiffany was so helpful when it came to making a decision…thank you again!
The deep blue stone is beautiful.
I wanted to buy something to remind me of my late grandfather. We used to play a dice based game every Sunday night. I saw this little charm from Mayveda and felt an immediate connection to it. It was a bit out of my price range, but after speaking with Tiffany we were able to reduce the price by not including the chain. She was so lovely throughout the whole process and kept me updated when it had gone out. The charm arrives quickly and the packaging was beautiful. It was such a great experience I’ll surely be back in future! Thank you again so much Tiffany!!
I was initially wary as incorrect tracking indicated delivery had been made and I did not receive a reply to my enquiry. However they had replied and it had been directed into my junk mail. Shipment was delayed due to holiday and when the bracelet arrived it was as described and beautifully gift wrapped.
Very easy ordering, and helpful service. Got Gorgeous items ❤️
I'm so happy for buying this pin . It's so beautiful and just the right size also, I'm so impressed with the package... It's so beautiful and elegant . Tiffany thank you so much for caring and for all the goodies !

I had a wonderful experience shopping with Mayveda. The locket I bought was exactly as described, the communications from the seller were great, quick and informative, and the packaging was absolutely beautiful and present-ready. Thank you!
The ring is just lovely! It arrived safely and beautifully packaged. Tiffany was very helpful in answering my pre-purchase questions, and kept me up to date on the shipment. Thank you!

I bought these two items as a birthday gift for my wife, she is really delighted with them. The items are beautiful and as described and the packaging was incredibly good. Beautiful in fact!
The sizing I requested translated to a very comfortable fit for my partner’s ring, and was very professionally and invisibly done. Thank you!
My partner loves her beautiful ring. The perfect thing I was seeking for our anniversary. Thank you so much!
