    This was recently purchased in a thrift store for ten bucks. I have very limited knowledge in jewelry but when I saw the jeweled clasp I knew this wasn't junk. So when I got home I found this was similar to the bohemian garnet necklaces I saw online. The clasp works but the safety chain seems to be missing. There is also a missing stone on the chain. So it's not in perfect condition but I just love it and will keep it on display in my home. Maybe there is someone on this site that can confirm or disprove?

      A very nice Bohemian garnet necklace set in vermeil perhaps. Probably made in Germany at the end of the 19s century. Is there any mark?
    9. moonkana, 5 years ago
      Thanks for commenting Agram.m. I have not located any markings. I really like the design and haven't come across any identicals .. that's why I love this piece.

      This is a beautiful piece of Bohemian garnet jewelry. The material used is tombac (a brass-copper-zinc alloy). I would date it right to the end of the 19th century or even the beginning of the 20th century. The garnets still have a nice rose cut and the backs of the stones are closed.
      Later jewelry often shows garnets with a "Spiegelschliff" (a flat cut upper stone surface), an open backing and the metal the jewelry is made of changes to silver or gold.
      Most garnets used today in modern jewelry show brownish-red colors. The old garnets in contrast show wonderful blood red shades.
      Enjoy you wonderful collier!
