Connemara Marble

Queen Victoria Coin Pendant

This penny coin dates from the latter days of Queen Victoria’s reign. Their dates will vary but will come from the period 1890 – 1901. The coins are made from bronze and were in everyday circulation. There were 12 pennies in a shilling and 20 shillings in a pound!

The coin features the bust of Queen Victoria wearing her widows veil in memory of her beloved Prince Albert.

During this Victorian Era the British empire was at the height of power and many ambitious building projects began. There was a much sought after demand for the finest of marbles to adorn the fine building and the use of Ireland’s rare Connemara Marble is featured in may examples of Victorian architecture.

The marble was so famous that in the later years of Queen Victoria’s son, King Edward VII made a visit to our Marble quarry in Co. Galway during his state visit to Ireland in 1903. We dont have any Connemara Marble in this pendant as it is set within sterling silver with rose gold plating and presented on an 18″ chain with a 2″ extender.

This is a limited edition necklace – a one off style. Enjoy the unique opportunity to own a genuine, original Victorian coin. You may also like to see the matching Bracelet . The coin within the bracelet is set within two lines of  Connemara Marble Beads.
