Amor et Virtute Gold Vermeil Necklace

Regular price £75.00

A brand new jewellery collection inspired by our Tudor collection.

Amor et Virtute Gold Vermeil Necklace from Licensed To Charm - handcrafted from 925 Sterling Silver plated in 18ct Gold Vermeil.

This handcrafted necklace takes inspiration from the inscription in the top left-hand corner of Sir Walter Ralegh's portrait 'AMOR ET VIRTUTE', and feature Ralegh’s motto, Latin for love and virtue, which is inscribed on the smooth disc pendant.

Ralegh’s gallantry and voyages of exploration made him a firm favourite with Elizabeth I, and the portrait containing his motto was painted at the peak of his popularity. His fine clothes and jewels are indications of his status and prosperity.

The necklace is a meaningful token to give to a friend or loved one. and can be paired with the matching National Portrait Gallery Amor et Virtute Gold Vermeil Stud Earrings.

More about Licensed To Charm:

Licensed to Charm is a designer and maker of quirky collectable jewellery which is full of character, unique and totally authentic. Everything is designed and made in the UK and collections include both officially licensed ranges and our own design creations.

Founded in 2012, the business was initially a small family-run workshop and boutique shop creating and making its own designs. In 2018 during a visit to Bologna book fair founder Maggie Calmels had the idea to recreate favourite characters and objects with a special place in people’s memories as collectable charm jewellery to be sold via e-commerce – and so Licensed to Charm was born.

Our products are all made in the UK using highly skilled artisans in the established jewellery trade in London, Birmingham and Scotland to create the figurative components. Highly detailed CAD drawings are used to produce 3D prototypes for most licensed products however our designers also produce pieces using traditional wax carvings and graphics for flat tags and key rings. Once approved the designs are manufactured in 925 grade sterling silver, in different shapes and sizes to suit different items. Charms and pendants are made using traditional lost-wax casting while flat tags are made using a photo etching and engraving process.
