Victorian black French jet mourning jewellery necklace, ca. 1870-1890 Jet elements are linked together. The French glass cabochons are all faceted so that the necklace reflects light beautiful with wonderful. Each glass element is backed with a black enamel metal frame. The piece is closed with two simple black metal hooks and eyes. While black jewellery during this time was worn for mourning, it was also very fashionable and worn for its beauty and sentiment. Good condition. Some nicks on the glass. Some cabochons looks replaced with other original beads. Difficult to say… The black enamel are all intact with the closure working. Overall, this is an excellent well cared piece of antique Victorian jewellery! The decoration is not included. Very rare to find!
