This beautiful solid sterling silver sliding pencil pendant is a fine collector's piece, and an all round exquisite example of Victorian craftsmanship.
With every inch intricately engraved and embossed in decorative detailing this telescopic pencil might have been worn on a Victorian lady's chatelaine or guard chain but she is now a necklace pendant that you can adore and wear daily. Fully functioning, she is as pretty as she is practical!
A sliding ring pushes up to reveal the silver nozzle that holds the pencil lead. The nozzle unscrews so you can replace the lead when needed and it fits 1.1mm size pencil lead. The top is set with a citrine seal stone. The detachable collar has a heavy duty silver jump ring ready to attach a silver chain that will match her character or you can take if off if you wanted to display on a desk.
Perfect for layering with other antique pendants, this beautiful piece will make a unique gift for a writer friend or loved one!
