This is a nice heavy double strand of natural Garnet beads. These would look stunning while dancing, or for that matter anytime. The clasp has a pretty filigree top and is gold plated, or gold filled. The beads are heavy at 128.9 grams. Length is 22" with the clasp. These sparkle even in the light of the computer. Condition is excellent. No beads missing. These are strung on wire. They are faceted flat beads. I would date this great double strand necklace at c 1980's or so. They have deep ruby reds to a little lighter reds, but very well matched.
