Antique Victorian Banded Agate Bead 23" Necklace
This sale is for a finely made and substantial, banded agate bead necklace, that is from the Victorian era.This piece is just under 23" long, with beads that graduate in size from just under 3/4" in diameter in front, down to 3/8" in diameter in back. The necklace closes securely with an older spring ring clasp but I'm not positive its original to the piece since at some point this necklace was re-strung. The necklace is strung on sturdy black thread and is very secure without any gaps in the strand. This necklace is unique for its substantial size of the beads and the longer length of the necklace which weighs 166 grams. The beads have a bold cut with the white stripe cutting across the center of the bead surrounded by finer lines of different colors. The beads have a smooth sheen, there are no pits or chips, and no surface wear to dull the pretty patterning of the agate. The strand is secure and this piece is very wearable. Overall this is a finely made and substantial, banded agate bead necklace, that is from the Victorian era and is in Excellent condition.
