DESCRIPTION (Please scroll to the bottom to view video)
Possibly the prettiest antique Bohemian garnet necklace we’ve had the pleasure of offering recently, this beauty dates to the late Victorian era circa 1890-1910.
Designed as full circle of floret garnet clusters graduating to the largest at the front and featuring seven also graduated drops.
Rich and deep in hue the garnets are all rose-cut Bohemians, all original and with no distasteful replacements or re-glues… quite exceptional condition for her age.
A similar necklace can be seen in the 1899 Benjamin Allen Catalogue’.
Backed in gold gilt, still rich in hue and her original tubular barrel clasp which secures perfectly.
Antique bohemian garnet fringe necklaces such as these are becoming increasingly hard to source in this condition, snap this beauty up, she won’t last long.
Bohemian garnet - (Pyrope)
Longest centre drop - 5cm
Shortest drop - 3cm
Very good to excellent antique condition. All Garnets original, no re-glues, no chips or damage. Clasp works perfectly. Originally would have had a little safety chain, frankly, we find these a nuisance and can get caught in your hair! A replacement if required would be easy to source. No losses to gold gilt finish to rear. Lovely condition.
