Antique Victorian Bohemian Garnet & Silver Gilt Necklace
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: C.1890 or so
ITEM: A beauty! In silver gilt, here's a Victorian-era Bohemian Garnet necklace featuring an awesome center section and quatrefoil florettes at each end. Add a tongue-in clasp with an added safety chain and you have this stunning bit of garnet red for the neck!
CONDITION: Very nice with the only faux pas being one garnet that has a small chip (towards the back of the necklace) - not seen with the naked eye. The necklace could probably use a light polish but this would enhance the silver/gold and right now, the patina to the piece is perfect.
METAL CONTENT: Appears to be silver gilt not gilt brass as most pieces were. More than likely Czech manufactured which would make the silver of either 800, 900 or 925 quality.
HALLMARKS: None that I can spot.
SIZE: Length from end to end is 14-1/2" - a bit of added chain to either end will lengthen the piece. Center SOLID section measures 2-1/2" x 2".
WEIGHT: 11.4 grams
FINAL COMMENTS: Ready to wear!
