Portrait Necklace

A portrait necklace is a piece of jewelry that features a miniature portrait of a person or animal as its centerpiece. The picture is usually painted on a small round or oval piece of ivory or porcelain and then set in a metal frame. Portrait necklaces were popular in the 18th and 19th centuries to keep a loved one close at all times. They were often given as gifts to family members or romantic partners and could feature a portrait of the person giving or receiving it. Today, portrait necklaces are often used as sentimental jewelry pieces to honor a loved one or commemorate a special moment or occasion.
