Circa 1880s, 18k. This magnificent antique necklace features sumptuous gold work set with fiery garnet carbuncles. The look is vintage chic at its Arch Victorian best. Handmade and one-of-a-kind, this would have been a very fashionable baroque revival necklace 150 years ago. Today, it is an antique find that adds character, soul, charm, and variety to contemporary looks. It comes apart and can be worn as two bracelets. Meticulously made, this Victorian one-of-a-kind is in excellent condition.

Stone Details: The Garnet cabochons, or carbuncles as they were called, are foil-backed to enhance their fiery appearance. Stones of this color, often referred to as "Bohemian Garnets," are rare.

Remarks from Lawrence Jeffrey: “To wear history is a marvelous feeling. To find relevant beauty from a century and a half ago a marvel. To make a chic fashion statement grounded by a stunning jewel from the 19th century… there are no words …you are the picture …you are electricity … it is a delight to live in such a moment.”
