Victorian 1890s gold bead necklace with textured gold beads faceted rock crystal rondelles and carved carnelian beads. Decorated on the front by a trio of open work and rich texture gold beads graduating between carved carnelian beads, separated by faceted rock crystal rondelles, completed by plain gold beads with an integraged clasp. All the gold enriched by a gorgeous patina that is the product of a hundred plus years in time and the loving care with which this delightful necklace has been preserved. This necklace is a fine example of the Victorians wide range of tastes in jewelry design and their relentless affection for the presense of beauty and artistic expression in every thing that was a part of their lives. The greatest testament to how on cue they were in this regard is perhaps the fact that this necklace fits right in with our modern taste and fashion. It is timeless. For over three decades Jacob's Diamond & Estate Jewelry has been in the business of selling a carefully curated collection of antique and estate jewelry.
