This piece of jewellery is a chatelaine and originally it was designed to substitute the missing pockets of a woman’s dress. Useful household items such as sewing tools, scissors, a coin purse, a clock key, a scent bottle, seals, and the keys to the house were hooked to a series of chains which suspended from a decorative hook or clasp, to be attached to the waistband.

Super quick and easy, try them for breakfast, brunch or a light lunch served with a chilled glass of something white.
