A beautiful early 1900s harlequin necklace in high carat yellow gold. This exquisite piece lets you wear all the colours of spring at once, adorned with natural gemstones in every colour of the rainbow; the gemstones comprise of garnets, sapphires, zoisite, zircons and spinels, each set in a bespoke claw set collet. The hand cut stones range in colour from the deepest red garnets to the brightest blue zircons and are all offered in excellent overall condition with only surface wear to the two zircons and one small chip to the corner of the zoisite to note. The gemstones are strung onto a fine belcher chain and finished with a traditional barrel clasp. We do believe that the chain has been extended at some point in history as there is an ever so slight difference in patina of the end 1” of chain on each end of the necklace, however this has been expertly done and takes the necklace to a wearable 17” length.
