Caroline's Jewelry with a Past is offering an exquisite bloomed 18kt. yellow gold Etruscan Revival necklace c. 1870. This Grand Tour piece in the style of Castellani features 12 bell shaped gold drops adorned with wirework, cannetille and applied flowerettes. The center 6 bells have a trefoil textured piece of gold surmounted by an applied ball decoration. Interspersed with the bells are 11 carved, rose shaped, graduated, pale pink coral roses with a slightly white striation throughout . The largest rose is 11.75mm tapering to 8.75mm near the chain. The rosettes are evenly matched for size (side to side) and color. The chain is a work of art. It is foxtail with gold textured spacers of intricate detail between the bell shapes. The clasp is a tongue and groove style with an oval piece of pale pink coral which match the rosettes and is 6.1mm X 4.35mm. The necklace is 15-1/2" long X 3/4" to 1" (maximum) width. The piece weighs 34.4 grams.

The gold content of this piece has been tested using standard accepted testing methods, such as acid testing. The granulation of some of the bells is missing and is presumed to have not been completed in manufacture since the piece is bloomed gold throughout.
