Renee says: “A most remarkable vintage pewter “Centaur” button, which I’ve set in sterling silver as feature pendant. There are not enough words to describe how much I love this pendant which is remarkable in every way. (See a bit about the “Centaur” below.) I have shown this piece on a cuff and pearls, but it also look great worn on a long silver chain. This is a real statement piece, never dating or going out of style…very much piece of mythological history! Scroll thru’ images for up close peek. Vintage button pendants….treasures from a by gone era to cherish today!”

As a avid Renee Blackwell Jewellery Design wearer since 2000 – I just received my latest gorgeous gold vermeil earrings – Just what I wanted! I wore them last night for my first Christmas Cheer party. I was complimented several times and would highly recommend RBJD for the first class service and high quality of her jewellery. Maree
What is a Centaur?
A centaur, or occasionally hippocentaur, is a mythological creature from Greek mythology with the upper body of a human and the lower body and legs of a horse. Though female centaurs, called centaurides or centauresses, are not mentioned in early Greek literature and art, they do appear later in antiquity.
