Dark red garnets link in romantic floral clusters in this antique Victorian garnet tassel necklace.  At the heart of this Bohemian garnet necklace is a slightly larger central flower garnet cluster.  Six smaller garnet flower clusters add a delicate flow and balance to this necklace.  Two delicate garnet draped links are curved to enhance the beauty of the neck.  Five grapevine tassels are elegantly suspended from the main components of this necklace.  This eighteen inch necklace is crafted in gold wash over brass.

This intricate antique garnet tassel necklace captures the romantic influence of the Victorian era.  Garnet necklaces were frequently made in Bohemia during the Victorian Jewelry period.  They may be recognized by the rose-cut stones clustered in large quantities in floral patterns.  Usually they were crafted in low grade gold or gilt metals.
