    Hello everyone.

    I bought this necklace 4 years ago because it was different to any other necklaces that I have....and I really like it! and it only cost $8.00.

    It is very heavy and very cold! which is why I have put agate and glass.....but I am not really sure......I am sure someone here will know!!

    The push in large gilt clasp is really different I think, it does not have any identification on it, the back of the clasp looks like the gilt is wearing off.
    The "dark" glass beads show green sparkly colour which I hope the pictures have captured.

    This necklace could probably do with a restring....little bits of wire are loose in some places.

    Appreciate your thoughts on this one, thanks Judy.

      Nearly iridescent, I love it!

      That is a great necklace, Judy. I love some weight so they sit well, the triple strand is great, as is the catch.

      As a jewellery lover but one who is pretty ignorant, how did you identify the beads as agate?

      Thank you Pascale, glad you love it.....there is just something about it!!!
    4. Efesgirl Efesgirl, 6 years ago
      Beautiful, Judy! Always a sign of quality when the beads are separated by spacers so they don't "clack" against each other and suffer any damage.

      Hi Karen, thanks .... I am really ignorant when it comes to stones and time periods as well.....I am only going on the look, feel and weight, an uneducated guess that I am hoping someone will correct for me lol!! My husband says they could be gall stones for all I know!!!

      Thanks Bonnie, that's great....had not thought of that!!! It does frustrate me that I just don't know enough!!!

      They may be composition material made, from what I can see. It is hard to tell from photos. These are lucky to have survived as with the string holding them together, that often broke. The best ones are with complete metal joining which lasts a long time. The main rectanular jewellery finding shown is a fairly common one, but nice with the beading colouring.

      Very beautiful necklace Judy!
    13. TassieDevil TassieDevil, 6 years ago
      Thanks very much PhilDMorris for your helpful comment. Glad they have survived as well. I just think the necklace is really interesting regardless. Thanks again for taking the time to look, comment and love....really appreciated.

      Hello TassieDevil, I have an idea that the white beads might be alabaster (don't know how it's called in english, the same?). Like in this necklace from 1850 bought in Paris according to our museum.

      ..and here is more information on alabaster:

      ...and :)... by that I'm saying I pretty sure this is an older necklace. I love love love it!!!!
    24. TassieDevil TassieDevil, 5 years ago
      Hello Elizabeth, Alabaster........how interesting......thank you I will certainly look into that!! They do look very similar to your Museum piece don't they!!
      I am glad you love it, I do too. There is just something about it that makes me pick it up every once in a while and wish it could speak to me lol!
      Appreciate the love too thank you! :-)
