AAA Bronze Peacock Pearl, Natural Hessonite Garnet and Cloisonné Long Necklace
The pictured necklace of AAA 10mm Bronze Peacock Pearls, faceted AAA Hessonite Garnets and very beautiful 15mm x 6mm Cloissone ovals is one that goes almost anywhere. Adding a bit of extra sparkle are 24K gold-plated Japanese Miyuki seed beads.
Easy to put on and easy to wear, the necklace is 34 inches long and closes with a small gold over brass toggle clasp.
Cloisonné is an ancient technique for decorating metalwork objects, using vitreous enamel. The decoration is formed by first adding compartments (cloisons in French) to the metal object by soldering or adhering silver or gold wires or thin strips placed on their edges. These remain visible in the finished piece, separating the different compartments of the enamel or inlays, which are often of several colors.
The purple, blue, rust and pale blue Vintage Cloisonné beads in this necklace were made in China in the 199O's and blend perfectly with the other elements.
