Exquisite Victorian Garnet Necklace
An exquisite late Georgian or early Victorian garnet and 14 karat yellow gold necklace. The garnets are gold-backed giving them a lovely iridescent shimmer. This necklace is set with four bezel-set, oval cabochon garnets (22.44carats: MI clarity: Deep purplish Red colour).
It is also set with four bezel-set, round cabochon garnets (16.22 carats: MI clarity: Deep Purplish Red).
While everything about this necklace looks Georgian, the clasp could date the necklace later. This is an excellent example of period jewellery and it is in wonderful condition.
