This antique necklace dates to about the 1860s, perhaps a bit earlier. The jet beads have a high gloss, making the faceted angles sparkle fetchingly.
The necklace is a smaller/shorter size, about 14 inches long total. The approximately 7mm beads are strung on a fine chain, not cord or gut, and it has its original barrel-shaped clasp. Very cool!!
One bead had been broken in two, but has been repaired with clear epoxy. I couldn't get it to show in the photograph, but I always mention things like this.
I guarantee this necklace to be true Jet. Not Vulcanite or glass!
What is Jet? It's a fossilized wood, so the beads are lightweight and have a warmth to them.
Be sure to see my shop for more very old, and mourning AuldBaubles!
