Victorian Bohemian Garnet Necklet and Detachable Locket
A spectacular array of Bohemian garnets. Richly hued, facet cut garnets are discretely set in gilt washed metal.
The necklace is formed by two strands of interlocking garnet daisies meeting in the front centre .
Three more, variously sized daisies, form a drop on which a substantial oval garnet, detachable pendant is suspended.
The back of the pendant is mounted with a hinged crystal cover.
A truly opulent piece that will elevate a simple gown into red carpet couture .
The depressed tongue clasp is camouflaged by a garnet set daisy.
The clasp is sound and secure and has an attached safety chain.
Fabulous. Circa 1880.
