<<<< SAPHIRET >>>>

Saphiret glass was made in Gablonz, Czechoslovakia, in the mid XIXth Century.
The process was to mix melted gold in sapphire blue glass.
The result was an opaque to semi opaque glass that had a range of colors from pinkish brown to red with soft glowing blue reflections on the surface and which had the particularity to change color and contrast under different lightings and backgrounds.
Production was stopped very early 20th century because of the increase of gold prices. So all saphiret items are pre Art deco, mostly Victorian/Edwardian.
Today genuine saphirets are of high rarity and much sought after stones by collectors.

This antique item is exceptional in all respects and of great rarity, beads used are well over a 100 years old and still in pristine condition.
