This Victorian antique garnet necklace is circa 1880. It has an unusual simple, elegant design with closed back, rose cut Bohemian garnets. The double drop pendant has garnets that are set in a dramatic pyramid shape, and sparkle with every turn.
The necklace is a choker measuring 14 inches. The central pendant elegantly rests at the cleft of the neck and measures 1 3/4 inches long. The top pyramid is 1 inch and the bottom is 3/4 inches. The back of the pendant has a hook whereby the bottom drop could be removed if desired. The garnet chain terminates in a lovely concealed push clasp. It is set in "garnet gold" or gilt metal, correct for the period of design and perfect for the enhancement of garnet color. The lovely simplicity of design lends itself for casual or evening wear.
