    An another flea market find, it was hiding in a bag full of other necklaces. It has no marks but I thought its quality is very nice so I bought it - I paid maybe 1 or 2 EUR.

    P.S.
    Here are some more photos of it, I would like to know your opinion, guys. If they are not precious stones... OK, no big harm for me, 1 EUR is still a good price for a nice necklace (even if I hate to appear stupid but still better than to stay stupid :DD ).

      Pretty, but not semi-precious stones. Looks like Czech glass beads/seed beads. The metal on the necklace is very inexpensive. Here are some 6mm orange multi-cut Czech glass beads:

      Efesgirl, but I would say the big beads are really stones, not glass - they are cold as stone is. I know czech glass and this is nothing like it. Also the tiny beads are nothing like the beads from your link. I would make a better photo.

      It is really difficult to tell from photos. These are Hessonite Garnets:

      thank you Efesgirl! The original photos were low quality indeed... my bad.

      Not ruby imho...
      Similar to these:
      Ruby jade (dyed) faceted round beads (8mm)

    7. lentilka11, 4 years ago
      Thank you Kyra! This looks very similar indeed!
    8. lentilka11, 4 years ago
      and the tiny beads?
    9. kyratango kyratango, 4 years ago
      You're very welcome, Martika :-)
      Tiny beads may or may not be coral, small round beads may or may not be carnelian... Difficult to say from pics!
      Anyway, as you said 1 or 2€, it was not overpaid :-D
    10. Efesgirl Efesgirl, 4 years ago
      Your photos are fine - sometimes it's just difficult to get the clarity one wants when photographing jewelry. :-)))))
    11. lentilka11, 4 years ago
      No for sure not overpaid - given the beads price from internet (mine are bigger), but the piece would be elaborate even with glass. I am glad I dont buy anything from the seller I mentioned previously on that mineral market though. She asked 50 EUr for her necklaces and they were simpler. But given the beads price its OK..she just shouldnt lie. But maybe she did not know.
      Flea market is safer place to buy necklaces so it seems :))

      Agree Efesgirl + thank you!
