Gold Joan of Arc Long Chain Medallion Necklace
This antique gold French chain, consisting of over five feet of gleaming hand-formed links, suspends a shaped medallion of Joan of Arc. Composed of navette-form links, each centering a radial design of twisted wirework and alternating with circular trace links, the chain’s beautifully-wrought medallion shows the medieval heroine as depicted by the artist Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres. Worn glamorously doubled or tripled, this opulent period chain and medallion discreetly celebrate the young woman’s heroism and spirituality.
