Antique 9K Rose Gold & VICTORIAN BOHEMIAN Garnet Festoon Necklace
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer....
AGE: C.1890 or so
ITEM: A breathtakingly beautiful Bohemian Garnet necklace from the Victorian era. With a wonderful festoon appearance, the metal of the necklace is thick with rose gold (aka garnet gold) - possibly over brass but I have the feeling the gold is solid. It's a gut instinct which may or may not be right but I have not had a necklace like this with such a heavy gold backing in a long, long time. Tongue clasp closure.
CONDITION: Excellent with no stones missing. I can spot perhaps 2 replacements but again, I may be wrong on that. Back gold has tarnished with 100 years of age. A polish will bring up a high shine but really, the piece should just be left "as is".
METAL CONTENT: 9K Rose Gold (tested) - whether over a brass base or solid gold, I really cannot tell with any certainty.
HALLMARKS: None that I can spot.
SIZE: Neck length is 15-1/2". Center drop measures 1-1/2".
WEIGHT: 18.5 grams - a hefty weight indeed.
FINAL COMMENTS: Ready to wear!
