A stunning jet beaded fob chain that has been remade into a necklace. The thick rope of glittering jet beads has a ribbed gold filled focal set with two tiny rubies and a seed pearl and has matching gold end caps. The gold contrasts beautifully with the glittering jet beads.
Suspended from the fixed (non-sliding) focal is a faceted iridescent black Victorian 'charm string' bead; these were collected by young Victorian women and are a collector's piece in themselves.
Overall length from end to end is 20 inches or 51cm including the newly added matte black chain
The antique beaded section from end cap to end cap is 13 inches or 33cm
Strand thickness: 6mm
Age: the beaded section and iridescent drop are both from the mid 1800s.
Condition of Antique Parts:
The beaded rope chain is completely intact, not fragile at all but still needs to be handled with care given its antiquity. The gold fill has some mild wear under magnification and the dropper bead shows its age but is still brightly showing iridescent rainbow of color.
The workmanship on this beaded chain is wonderful and it makes a unique and elegant necklace that will not fail to elicit attention.
