This antique French Jet bead necklace is an enchanting Gothic piece. Crafted from beautiful large faceted French jet beads throughout, this fabulous Victorian necklace oozes glamour. 

French Jet beads were very popular in 19th century mourning jewellery, as they were a fashionable and more affordable alternative to Whitby Jet. Each bead is separated by a chunky knot so you can be assured of its security.

VERY GOOD: This antique French Jet bead necklace is in impeccable condition for its age. The entirety of the necklace feels sturdy and we believe that each bead is original to the piece. Under a magnifying loupe you can see some tiny abrasions to a few of the bead's facets from wear and storage, yet this is not noticeable when worn and the deep black colour of the French Jet masks it perfectly. Measuring 24 & 1/2" in length, this necklace will instantly add dramatic flair to every outfit.
