Most likely Chinese in origin, this gorgeous vintage genuine garnet and glass pearl gourd stitch necklace is almost identical to the necklaces from the Victorian times!
While I AM sure this necklace is vintage, I am not sure of the date. The only reason I don't think it is Victorian is that it is in such pristine condition! The genuine garnet beads and glass pearls are done in a fine gourd stitch and connected by twisted gold cord to garnet and white silk thread that has been braided and fringed on the ends. A gold thread ball sildes up and down the braiding making the necklace adjustable. The workmanship is amazing and the beads are in excellent condition. I could only find one tiny fray to the braided section of the cord. The braided part is 15" long and it can be adusted to about 28" long. Amazing!!!
