Victorian carved Carnelian bead necklace. Each oval bead is carved both front and back. The largest bead is 22 mm x 15 mm x 6 mm, and the smallest is 11 mm x 7.5 mm x 4 mm. As these are natural agates they vary in color. You can tell they were all hand done as they are each a different shape. They range from 4 mm thick to 8.5 mm thick. I took a close up of a bead at the back of the necklace- it appears that they use to have some paint in the engravings. I am sure they have been restrung as the clasp looks like a 1950s' clasp to me. The necklace is 16.25 inches long. I am a Graduate Gemologist and a retired Jewelry store owner (18 years) and my husband is my jeweler.
