Victorian 15kt Gold Etruscan Wirework Alternating Bead Necklace



A fantastic Etruscan beaded necklace from the Victorian (ca1880s) era! This beautiful and unique piece is crafted in vibrant 15kt yellow gold and comprised of a pattern of alternating beads. The beads, all strung on a braided gold chain, display a lovely pattern of Etruscan wirework-adorned round beads, matching spacers, and smoothly polished beads, the varying trio of shapes and textures coming together to create wonderful dimension and shine. Bell-shaped beads with an Etruscan surface complete the design at each end and a large spring ring clasp secures the piece in the back. Beautiful when worn during the day or at night, this necklace would make a wonderful addition to any Victorian collection! The necklace measures approximately 16.5" in total length. The round beads measure about 1/4" in diameter, the widest point of the necklace.
