This 21" antique Garnet double row beaded necklace is a show-stopping piece from the Art Deco era. This dramatic necklace has a bejewelled Marcasite clasp, with two strands of beaded Garnet galore.

VERY GOOD-GOOD: This 21" antique Garnet double row beaded necklace is in sublime condition throughout. All of the gems are secure, each well-matched in colour and size, gently graduating to its statement centre. There is some wear to a few of the beads, but this is barely noticeable when worn and is to be expected from its age. However, the clasp is in perfect working order, giving you complete peace of mind. Not to mention, the necklace is of impressive weight, being over 85 grams, so she will feel lovely and luxurious on your neck.
