VERY GOOD: This 15.5" antique Garnet Paste faceted beaded necklace is in amazing condition, especially considering this necklace's age. All of the Garnet beads are strongly knotted together, and the dog clip works very well indeed. If you look closely, you can see some tiny imperceptible nibbles to a few of the beads. However, this is nothing to be concerned about and can be further avoided by storing this necklace away from harder gemstones. Nevertheless, you can be confident that this Victorian necklace can be worn and treasured for another century more!
