This 33″ necklace features our Edinburgh key. This key was cast by US artisans exclusively for ExVoto Vintage from the original antique key. ExVoto designer, Elizabeth Adams, acquired the original key while visiting an antiques shop in Edinburgh Scotland. She became fast friends with the shop owner when a mutual affinity for antique keys was discovered. He opened up secret stash of antique keys to her and then allowed her to purchase one (just one) of his antique Edinburgh keys. He explained to her that the old town of Edinburgh had it’s own lock and key set decades ago and therefore their antique keys are completely unique to the rest of the world. The maze design within the keys are unique to each lock and key set. Realizing what a gift she had been given in being able to purchase one of these rare keys, Elizabeth asked the shop owner to remove the keys of which he was especially fond. Elizabeth then found the key she liked best and, to her delight, the shop owner approved her to purchase it from him.
Our Edinburgh key is cast in solid brass and is 2.25″ in length. The key is strung on a 33″ gold-plated chain with our signature toggle (which is also a design based on an antique key) and shield interlink.
