A beautiful late Victorian - Edwardian almandine garnet fringe necklace. This intricate necklace features seventeen hand set antique stones in 18ct yellow gold. The rectangular stones are all perfectly mismatched in shape with none being quite the same shape or size as the next. Each individual stone has a handmade collet that perfectly fits around its curves, hugging it in all the right places and keeping it secure. The stones are set in an intricate fringe design with draped chain that frames the perfect deep purple drops. The garnets are in good overall condition with only a few small nibbles and inclusions visible under magnification.
The garnets have been intricately strung on a beautiful 18ct yellow gold belcher chain, which is original to the piece, however a new clasp has been added. The chain is a wearable 19” in length but can easily be shortened if required.
