ANTIQUE SEED PEARL NECKLACE WITH AMETHYST DROPS


£375.00
Description
This necklace is very pretty. It is a row of natural seedpearls and hanging off them are 7 graduated amethyst drops. These amethysts are facetted so they reflect the light well. The largest stone is just over half inch long, and the smallest just under half an inch.  The seed pearls are very fine...just how did they drill holes in them in those days?...and the necklace is finished with a 9ct clasp.  It is hard to know when the pearls were first used as they have been around for so long but I think this necklace was put together around 1860 to1900.  This type of necklace can be found with many different drops,like citrines or multicolour gems.  They are always pretty and look so attractive when worn. This necklace is in a very good condition and well threaded. (with seed pearl necklaces you need to be careful undoing them, as, though they are well threaded, they cannot be pulled or tugged. Also a general reminder is that you should not use perfume or hairspray when you have any pearl necklace on. Please do that before you put on any pearl jewellery!)
length  17" long.
