Did you know that “clock watches” were first worn as pendants on both men and women in the 16th century? These over-sized timepieces were later made into smaller clocks watches that were called “pocket watches” in the 17th century.
Many steampunk designs today focus on the rustic and industrial side of the Victorian Era. Sahetah’s Jewelry however, creates a romantic and feminine flare to the old tradition of wearing elaborate pocket watches as necklaces and calls it ‘Feminine Steampunk’. These necklaces are not for those who are shy at heart. This necklace is looking for a woman who loves glamour and serious ‘wow’ factor. Love turning heads and having everyone’s enamored eyes drawn to you? Then this necklace is designed for you.
