Bohemian Garnet Festoon Necklace
With a penchant for the dramatic, this necklace of Bohemian garnets most certainly inspired the romantic in any Victorian or Edwardian lady. Striking with its rich claret color, two festoon swags are encrusted with faceted Bohemian garnets in patterns of stars or flowers that sensuously drape across the neck. These clusters are additionally accented with twelve (12) smaller floral pendants and dangles. The entire necklace is enrobed in rose gold gilt (metal that has been overlaid with gold) and has intensified the depth and warmth of each stone.
Measures 17-3/4 inches (45 cm) in total length. The size of the flowers range from just less than 3/8 of an inch (0.8 cm) in diameter to more than ¾ of an inch (2 cm). The length of the descent from the largest flower to the lowest drop is 2-1/4 inches (5.8 cm). This antique necklace has a weight of 26.5 grams. In very good condition with light wear on the reverse and some loss of gilding; garnets all original and intact; safety chain lost to the ages. Dates to circa 1900.
Historical note: The heyday of Bohemian garnet jewelry was the 19th century and it was during that period where its characteristic design form of the garnets entirely dominating the metal setting was developed.
