Antique Victorian Bohemian Garnet Festoon Drop Necklace

Hi everybody! Gungirly's auctions have changed just a little bit so please read the fine print. I'm starting the winter with a BANG & have LOTS of wonderful goodies to list!

Offered for auction is an antique Victorian era Bohemian Rose cut garnet swag necklace. This wonderful old necklace has a gothic feel with the ornate rosettes, dangles and pear shaped stones! It is in very good condition with no damage, no missing stones. It is gold wash / gilt over silver finish.

The stones are a deep red with a sparkling fire. The setting is closed back but I removed a stone and they are genuine garnets, not foil backs. Each stone is mounted over a tiny piece of white paper / cardboard that brings out the light in the stones, this is not uncommon with older pieces and brings out the color of the stones.

The chain looks like it may be a replacement but the flat design lays the necklace flat when worn. It measures 17 1/2" long and hangs down 2 1/4" at the center. This is a beautiful antique necklace and whether you choose to wear it or give it, it will an elegant accessory for the holidays.
