Beautiful antique necklace. This Victorian Whitby jet mourning necklace features hand knotted beads of varying types – all made of genuine Whitby jet. It is a long necklace with no fastening – it just fits over the head. It has small faceted hand cut beads leading to oval and square cut beads and 3 larger round beads.
The beads have small nibblets on them which can be seen under a magnifying glass but the shine on the jet beads is lovely considering it’s age.
It is a lovely necklace and really is a tribute to the makers of Victorian mourning jewellery.
The necklace weighs 32 grams. It measures 70cm long and sits near the breastbone. Presented in a beautiful satin drawstring bag.
