Antique mourning necklace, Whitby jet beads.
Antique, Classic & Elegant...
Never out of style, the soft glow of Whitby jet is always captivating. This necklace is being sold as is. One of the beads is split. It really isn't that noticeable when worn, it could be glued or the necklace could be re-strung and made perfect again.
Most of the faceted beads are in great shape, just a few flea bites on the back on a few beads. All the beads are hand carved and faceted. Hand polished, they are all just a little bit different.
The clasp is unique, also jet, a barrel shape with metal findings at the ends, a push in mechanism. It is 17 1/4" long and the largest bead is 1" north to south.
