Lady Mary Wortley Montagu Liberty Pearl Pendant


| /

“I prefer liberty to chains of diamonds” was Lady Mary Wortley Montagu’s rallying cry against the trappings of aristocracy. A gifted author, Lady Mary also led the way in bringing Smallpox inoculation to the British Isles, having witnessed its success in the Ottoman Empire.

Her words of wisdom, written in a letter to a friend, are expertly laser etched and hand inked into the surface of a shimmering cream acrylic sphere, hand curved to mimic a pearl, and suspended from an adjustable gold-tone chain.

Designed and created by Tatty Devine, inspired by the Chawton House collection.

Design measures 3.5cm x 3.5cm.
Total chain length is adjustable from 45cm - 50cm
