The carnelian on this necklace is an amazing shade of russet peach. The beads are translucent to transparent. The pendant matches perfectly. I could not decide if I liked the front or the back of the pedant better. The front has foliage and a bird and the back has fruits, leaves and vines. It is beautifully carved and large! It measures 52mm x 40mm. (2" x 1-5/8"). The beads are slightly graduated from 10mm to 12.5mm. The necklace is 26" with an additional drop of 2" for the pendant. The clasp is gilt silver filigree hallmarked silver. This necklace is c1930, Art Deco period.
