Victorian 14kt Etruscan + Rock Quartz Crystal Bead Necklace 17.5"
A wonderful beaded necklace from the Victorian (ca1880) era! This beautiful piece is comprised of gorgeous 14kt yellow gold beads separated by rock quartz crystal rondelle spacers. Each gold bead features striking applied Etruscan wirework details that cover the entire surface, providing fabulous texture and dimension to the design. The facets on the rock crystal rondelles catch the light beautifully with every turn, and are a perfect complement to the gold beads. The necklace is hand strung on fine braided chain and fastens with a push clasp (stamped "DC") seamlessly hidden within the last three beads. When worn, it drapes beautifully at the neckline and the simplicity of the design makes this a perfect everyday accessory!
Measurements: The necklace measures approximately 17.5" long. Each Etruscan bead and rock crystal rondelle measure approximately 6mm in diameter.
Condition: The overall condition of the necklace is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the yellow gold beads or to the rock quartz crystal rondelles. The push clasp fastens securely and is in good working condition.
