In the early 1900’s when the mines were flourishing, each miner marked his entrance to the mine by placing a numbered tag over a hook. By doing this everyone knew which miners where down in the mine. When all the tags were off the hook at the end of the day, all the miners were up and safely out of the mine. Each tag represents a piece of American history.

This listing is for one necklace, style and number chosen at random. Unfortunately, I am not able to honor requests for specific numbers due to their vintage nature. Tags numbers and styles will vary as these are all vintage and one of a kind.
This piece is simple and stylish on its own, or adds a beautiful dimension to any layered look.
This necklace measures 24" on an antiqued brass ball chain, which can be cut with everyday scissors to customize length at will.
