A beautiful antique banded agate necklace from the Victorian era, c1900! The necklace comprises of 31 banded agate beads of brown hues to black with milky white banding. There are smaller jet black cylinder-shape beads alternating along the necklace, except at the front where the largest agates are placed. A subtle graduation in the beads is lovely, ranging from 10.30mm smallest to 17.70mm largest at the front. Total length is 20" inches (50cm). The necklace is strung on a sturdy black colour string and threaded straight onto the sterling silver fittings - an original bolt ring clasp and large jump. The agates are a smooth polish displaying a rich, glossy texture.

The silver fittings are not stamped, however a test indicates sterling silver. Selling separately on the Beryl Lane website is a matching pair of banded agate earrings - Antique Victorian 9ct Gold Banded Agate Dangle Earrings

A simple yet striking design. A stylish necklace which would look stunning worn day or night!

Sterling silver fittings
Thirty-one natural banded agates, ranging in size from 10.30mm smallest to 17.70mm largest at front, deep mid-brown hues with milky white banding. Jet black small cylinder-shaped beads in between - likely whitby jet.

Very good antique condition! There are a few shallow nicks to some of the beads which is usual for the age. Difficult to detect to the naked eye, albeit worth a mention. The thread appears firm with no fraying at the ends and the clasp is in good working condition. A wonderful antique agate strand to adore for the next century!
