    This is an incredibly beautiful Victorian necklace made I thought from brass with hanging drops each set with tiny glass tiles depicting doves with flowering twigs with forget me not flowers. I thought (and before I bought it) that it was made of brass. But the acid test for gold gave at least 18K gold (see photo). There are absolutely no marks. I bought it for the incredibly low sum of $ 43.50. Tiny glass tiles are called tesserae and has been painstakingly handset by an Italian artisan.
    It is in good wearing condition with only some missing tesserae. It fastens with a spring ring clasp which is repeared. It’s working well with a secure clasp.
    The necklace has a length of 36 cm. including clasp. The seven tesserae drops measure 1.5 x 1.3 cm. It weighs 18 grams.
    Stones/Beads: Tiny glass tiles/tesserae.

      What a find!
    2. Celiene Celiene, 5 years ago
      The tessare are the individual micro mosaic glass tiles. Not the medallions.

      What a wonderful find, and surprise, Marga!
      You well deserve it :-)

      Celiene, Marga is a micromosaic long time collector... The seven drops are made of tesserae :-)

      Gee, Marga, that was some great buy! What a beauty. I have a friend who collects micro-mosaic items, and she would go crazy over this necklace.
