1875 Whitby antique black jet three strand mourning necklace, book piece.

As seen on page 103 of Old Jewelry 1840-1950 - 7th Edition, and noted that a similar necklace can be found at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.

This necklace is a little more elaborate in the carving on the junction points where the three strands are threaded through to culminate into a single strand. One of these had a couple chips off the back when we obtained it, and it has been professional repaired and should be stronger than it was originally. It was also re-strung so it's ready to wear. The shortest strand has a total length of 18 inches, and the longest is 21 inches. It's a perfect length for today's styles and looks terrific when worn. The closeup photos reveal some cracking in the larger beads, but in keeping with the material, they are extremely light weight and if treated carefully, shouldn't be a problem. It has held together for well over 100 years and has a book value of $1200. In spite of the fact that this is a very rare jet necklace, our pricing reflects the condition issues.
