Victorian Banded Onyx Bead Necklace

Sold

798H

A graded banded sardonyx bead necklace with a hidden gold clasp within a bead. It was made circa 1880. The chain that the beads are strung on is 18ct gold. It was quite an art to cut the beads and to get the white band in the centre. It is very effective when worn.
