Antique Edwardian Carnelian Bead Necklace with 9k Gold Clasp

There was something fluid and sensuous about those Edwardians. A look, a feel. They had electricity and automobiles but they still had luxury, lots and lots of it. Lots and lots of jewelry, too. From diamonds to wear to balls and colored stone gems to wear to dinner, to beads and pendants for daywear. This necklace would have been daywear, fabulous daywear. When you wear it is up to you. I don't think you can go wrong. 

I rarely buy beads, when I do they have to be spectacular, like these. Hand cut, hand faceted large carnelian beads that warm to your skin and send out a wonderful fiery glow. Accented with smaller smooth beads, each one of these 17 larger faceted beads has a beauty and luster all it's own. The strand is 17 inches long including the 9 karat barrel clasp. The stringer appears to have been redone in the not-too-distant past and the necklace is in excellent and very wearable condition. It would look amazing with a little black dress and equally stunning with flip-flops and jeans. Weighs 40.8 grams. Made in England around 1910. 

I really love this one, if you don't snatch it up, look for me wearing it all summer long!
