"Annabelle" Rose Prada Tag Necklace
This creation is a first for me. When my Parisian antique and vintage button collector asked me if I was interested in Prada handbag tags, I initially thought, no, what would I do with them, but after some consideration, I decided I would have her include a few in my next button shipment and I'd come up with a design.
So these 3 make up the "Annabelle" collection.
These Prada tags, were originally worn on Prada handbags from the 1980's, so they are officially vintage. They do have some very slight scratches on them and the noir one does seem to have a bit more wear on the silver parts. This has created a look of rose gold, silver and black... it's interesting.
The Prada logo is a symbol of immense growth, authority and history. The logo is a perfect representation of royalty (in a literal and figurative sense). Due to the brand's roots in the Italian royal family, it initially established an air of aristocracy in the design. As time went by, the brand continued to reach fame and success through its sophisticated products and penchant for the unconventional.
Does that describe you or someone you know.... sophisticated with an air of royalty and a little unconventional?
At this stage, these 3 are the only pieces in this collection. The Annabelle Bleu, Noir and Rose. So once these have found new custodians, that's it, they're gone.
The settings have been completely hand crafted in solid sterling silver and come complete with a solid sterling silver curb link chain. These tags sit so well on the neckline and really do grab attention. They are simple, yet dramatic. The chain in 50cm in length, so they do sit a little higher on the chest, so as to allow you to wear just the Annabelle, or layer with your longer chains.
If you're looking for the perfect gift for your daughters, your granddaughters, or yourself and your best friends, then why not grab 2 or all 3 of them & spread a little vintage Italian royalty around. *Please contact me if you would like to purchase more than one of these & I will give you combined shipping rates.
*Please note, the buttons used in all of my creations are second hand, antique or vintage, therefore they will show signs of their previous lives. Some scratches, tiny dents, some enamel wear and even tarnishing. I cannot guarantee the quality or longevity of these buttons. In some cases there can be colour variations, and plating lift during the polishing process, this is unavoidable. I'm unable to refund or replace buttons that break or crack. Although I do put every button through rigorous testing to do my best to ensure their longevity.
Unlike costume jewellery, my jewellery is professionally hand crafted using traditional Goldsmith techniques and genuine, solid precious metals, so therefore you can wear your Porsha Bella pieces whilst swimming, showering and washing. These activities shouldn't damage or discolour the precious metals. I never take my jewellery off. However, you may need to polish your jewellery a little more frequently if you want that shiny, brand new look. If you treat your Porsha Bella creation, like the treasure of history it is, you should have an heirloom piece that will stand the test of time. If you have any concerns about how to care for this piece, then please reach out to me and I can help you with tips on getting a long and happy wear life out of it.
*Designer buttons have no affiliation with the brand or fashion house of their origin. I do my best to ensure all designer buttons are genuine and from a reputable source. Porsha Bella designer button creations are not sold on behalf of or in conjunction with the brand. The designer buttons are second hand, vintage or antique, with all rights removed and protected by the second hand market.
