These are beautifully hand carved tiny, tiny stars cut out and piercing
the bead. These have been verified by my jeweler as bone and not ivory
making them all the more appealing because they do not harm any
animals. The largest central bead is approximately 18mm in length.
Some are oval and some are round. Total of 21 graduated beads. In
between to give a dash of color are green and orange tested genuine
agate beads. Unmarked and tested sterling silver spring ring clasp.
In excellent vintage condition. Nice piece for those who like unusual
collectible beads. Circa 1837 to 1901 Victorian beads.
