From the turn of the 20th century England.....a 40-inch french jet bead necklace with various style black glass beads. Original clasp The faceted round beads are English cut. Faceted by hand; so no two beads are exactly alike! This was meant to be worn with other necklace......today you might want to wear it wrapped twice around the neck. Recently re-strung so it is nice and strong! Some of the beads have nicks, due to age. Mentioned only for the sake of accuracy as these tiny nicks are hardly noticeable.
