By now you probably know about Egyptian Revival, but that was only part of a more general "Archeological Revival" style going on at the end of the 19th century. This jangly, satisfyingly weighty collar fits into that aesthetic category; it moves with your body and vaguely looks like some exotic jewel worn by a beautiful chic ancient woman in a long-lost civilization. And dug up by a sexy archaeologist, sweating in the hot sun. Where? What civilization? From when? Not interesting to the Victorians. They liked a vague kind of exoticism, and here you go. Chic then, sexy now.
