DODO by Pomellato Estate Mixed Metals 9kt/Sterling Padlock Pendant Necklace
Founded in 1967, Pomellato was the first global luxury Italian fashion fine jeweler, known for their unconventional and colorful design. In 1994, Pomellato set out to expand its precious world by unveiling a new concept, especially dedicated to the young generations and their craving for trendy and easy-to-wear pieces. The idea of DoDo was born in Mauritius, the fabulous island where the real Dodo once lived. The story of this quirky bird was inspiring to Pomellato, therefore they started to design charms following the same style vision and creative freedom that has always distinguished the Italian Maison.
A lovely Estate necklace by the fashionable jewelry designer DoDo! Crafted in 9kt gold and sterling silver, this piece is comprised a silver padlock pendant which hangs from a rose gold paper clip link chain. The stylish padlock has a functional design, also acting as the clasp, opening and closing securely at the rose gold handle. Reminiscent of a Victorian era padlock, the pendant has a smoothly polished surface and features the word "legami" engraved on one side and the signature "DoDo" bird inscribed on the other side. There is a single, flattened sterling link incorporated into the chain which has several hallmarks including "375," "925," "DoDo," and two French import marks including the 375 clover leaf. The bottom of the padlock also has several hallmarks. A versatile piece by a fabulous jewelry maker, this trendy padlock necklace would make a wonderful everyday accessory. It's perfect for the fashion-forward woman's collection!
Measurements: The padlock measures a little less than 3/4" tall (from the top of the handle to the base of the lock), and is slightly less than 1/2" wide and 1/4" thick. The chain measures 16.5" long.
Condition: The overall condition of the necklace is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the silver and gold setting. The functional padlock is in good working condition, opening easily and closing securely.
