BLACK Steampunk Necklace, Steampunk Jewelry with UNUSUAL ELGIN Steampunk Watch Necklace with Gunmetal Black Gears, Chain and Bail, Steam Punk, Gothic Necklace, Perfect for Both Steampunk Women or Steampunk Men by Victorian Curiosities

Only 1 Available of this unusual, over 65-year-old, made in the USA Elgin watch necklace!


This Steampunk Necklace features a silver, vintage Elgin 554 Watch Movement that was made in the USA between the years 1943-1952. What makes it so unusual are the "blackened" gears/cogs and other surface parts. To complete this great piece of Steampunk Jewelry and Elgin history, I used a Blackened (gunmetal black) Bail (made in the USA), Blackened (gunmetal black) plated brass chain that is closed link (soldered closed) and Blackened (gunmetal black) lobster clasp. What a great unisex necklace and you can pick the chain length to suit your personal style.

And now you can be, too!
