Tourmaline Necklace Multi-Color Beads English Arts & Crafts

About

A bright and colorful treasure from the Arts & Crafts period, this English-made necklace is composed of thirty-seven very fine oblong tourmaline beads graduating in size from approximately 8mm to just shy of 14mm. Between these beads are thirty-four round bright pink tourmaline beads plus two golden yellow round tourmaline beads on either side of the silver (marked) clasp. Yellow is one of the rarest colors of tourmaline. What's more, many of these beads are "fancy tourmaline," meaning they display two or more colors at the same time. These beads are extraordinarily high-quality and their unique coloring makes this a very rare necklace. The box clasp itself is a rather elegant affair, with leaves and two flower blossoms on either side of the oval bezel-set rubellite tourmaline. The clasp is sterling silver and measures 24 mm x 6.5 mm. The beads have been carefully selected and placed within the necklace by its unknown creator, to achieve a balanced and harmonious strand. At the lowest center of the necklace is the largest stone, a tri-color tourmaline of blue-pink-yellow-green. Beside this are two almost colorless stones with a rich inner foliage of inclusions that makes them shimmer. Two coveted deep chrome tourmaline beads are next on the necklace followed by stones in shades of pink, yellow, gold, teal blue and then a very pale and elegant sea-foam green. It's a bit like wearing summer around your neck. Jewels from the Arts & Crafts period are rare but rarer still is a necklace in as fine condition as this. The necklace is strung on its original silk which is in remarkably fine condition. The beads are without chips, cracks or defects. This is clearly a one-of-a-kind piece executed with impeccable skill and taste. This versatile and beautiful antique necklace is 19.5 inches. It can be formal or casual. It's perfect to wear with a sundress and strappy sandals. You can even get creative and wrap it twice around your wrist and you have a bracelet -another reason why beaded 19" necklaces are so popular. They don't mind working double shifts. Treat yourself, your wife, your daughter or your best friend to this lovely and beautifully made English Arts and Crafts gem from the past and let it fill your future with color.
