Superb antique Victorian mourning jewelry necklace with links of vulcanite/gutta percha! The long necklace has 7/8" oval links all connected forming a wonderful antique necklace. Dating to the Civil War era, the necklace is applicable in today's fashion just as it was back 150 years ago. Add a locket as shown or wear with the clasp in the back. Very goth and fabulous! Note the locket is for display purposes only and available in another listing.

Gutta percha is derived from tropical trees indigenous to Southeast Asia. The sap from the trees formed a latex which allowed the Victorians to create jewelry, furniture as well as dentistry. Blocks of gray, black and brown were used by the artists to create the pieces.

Measurements: 19 1/2"
Circa: 1860-1870
Condition: Very good with no breaks or chips to the gutta percha links. Note that the locket is for display purposes only.
