Here we have a beautiful Georgian or early Victorian natural seed pearl necklace strung with blonde horse hair on mother-of-pearl backings circa 1800-30's. The necklace Looks like lace made of pearls. There are 4 or 5 tiny pearls missing on one of the rosettes seen in the photo. This necklace, like all these antique seed pearl pieces, is extremely delicate and could only be worn with great care, an elegant collector's piece in wonderful condition. The clasp is 12 carat(tested)rose gold and natural pearls and contains plaited blonde hair.
Seed pearl jewelry in this delicate style, sewn to a mother-of-pearl backing, was popular in the early 1800s when women wore delicate Classically styled Grecian costumes. The necklace is 18" long with a 2" drop.
