Antique Necklace, Stand of Seed pearls, American, ca. 1900. Small seed pearl necklace 16 1/2" in length. In excellent condition. The use of seed pearls in fine jewelry throughout the latter part of the 19th century was immensely popular with elaborate decorative brooches, tiaras, pins, and earrings being very representative of Victorian fashion at the time. Prestigious jewelers such as Tiffany, Cartier and Boucheron studded their designs with these tiny gems to match the sensual decadence of La Belle Époque fashion.
