We are pleased to offer a wonderful antique necklace. This piece is all hand formed and assembled. It features an intricate floral and leaf pattern set with rare orange hued Spessartite garnets and marcasites. The most valuable spessartites are a bright, orangish red and come from Ramona, California and Amelia, Virginia. The chain portion of the necklace is quite delicate and intricately designed. It closes with a small spring ring clasp.
The necklace measures approximately 17-1/2" in length. It retains a wonderful aged patina and is as we found it. We have not polished or cleaned the piece.
We took the necklace to our jeweler/gemologist and he stated it is a very special piece and beautifully constructed. Please ask any questions and let us know if you would like additional photos.
This necklace will be shipped in the U.S. via USPS Priority Registered Mail and a signature will be required at delivery.
