Victorian Etruscan Revival Agate Bead Necklace and Earrings
ABOUT THIS NECKLACE
Evocative of miniature and marvelous rock formations, the agate beads that comprise this striking Victorian necklace are naturally 'painted' by Mother Nature herself with bands ranging in color from translucent white to chocolate brown. Adding a burnished glow to the mix are bright 15K gold beads decorated in Etruscan Revival style with granulation and appliques of twisted wire. This utterly out-of-the-ordinary jewel is accompanied complementing dangling earrings. Hand fabricated, circa 1875, from Great Britain. The necklace measures 20 inches and the earrings are 2 1/8 inches long.
