This antique mother-of-pearl necklace is typical of the ornately carved shell adornments of the Victorian era.
This pendant is carved through with an intricate design around the star...it seems to rise up in 3-dimensional relief.
The star pendant measures 1 1/2 inches across by 1 7/8 inches high. It hangs from the 20-inch chain of beautiful luminescent MOP beads. They're linked together to create a sturdy chain. The clasp is a simple brass spring ring which appears to be original. Necklace is in excellent vintage condition. This type of shell carving is now a lost art which makes this necklace one to be worn and appreciated.
