Venetian necklace


Ships in
2-3 days
78 cm

The Venetian necklace is a one-of-a-kind fine jewelry piece made of two 18kt gold chains soldered together, two vintage glass beads, and an antique Persian bead from the 11th century. It measures 78cm but can be adjusted to your desired length. 

The Venetian necklace currently ships in 1 to 2 business days. It is delivered in its one-of-a-kind antique packaging, hot stamped with our logo. We ship worldwide. Shipping is free within the EU and our shipping fee for outside the EU includes duties, taxes, and insurance (you won't have to pay anything at delivery). 

The two 18kt gold chains used to make the Venetian necklace come from a German supplier's end-of-series stock and a second-hand chain bought at auction in France. The two glass beads come from a 1950s dead stock found at a historic glass supplier in Paris, and the 11th century Persian bead, made of glass too, comes from a Venetian antiques dealer. 

    The Venetian necklace is part of the Bin Bling collection, a capsule of fine jewelry made of (precious) waste.

    We've been blessed with great and kind press coverage. French Vogue was our first press feature (for the Boob ring of course), so heart out to them. We've also had a full page in M (Le Monde's style supplément), an amazing in-depth article in WWD, a feature in the T List and many many fabulous mentions in Stylist, Le FigaroCabana and even Gala.

    We've also struck some warm bonds in the digital world. I'm thinking of color-genius style maker @dahanadcr, creative director + Hadid sister @lanzybear and fashion empire builder @lisagachet.

    In real life (wait, Insta isn't real life? I'm up for a debate), our ambassadors are just the best. The queen of them all being writer Deborah Levy, who wears her Bangla Begum jewelry everywhere (even in Vogue). Princes and princesses of the realm include film director and actress Monia Chokri (@moniachokri), curator Diana Campbell (@dhakadiana), artist Miet Warlop (@miet_warlop), and Lebanese poet Hussein Nasereddine (@photo.hussein), all of them carrying Bangla Begum into their own wide and wild worlds.
