Antique Victorian Cut Steel French Jet Necklace Mourning
By way of the late 19th century comes this antique Victorian necklace with faceted black French jet beads alternating with silver cut steel beads. Each cut steel section is threaded to form tiny flowers with the black glass beads having different shapes. At 23 inches long, the necklace slips over the head with the long tapered beads measuring 40mm. The necklace was most likely a piece of mourning jewelry but certainly has enough flash to make any little black dress a standout!
