VICTORIAN antique French jet lacy look necklace
Description VICTORIAN antique French jet lacy look necklace, 16" with a 3-7/8" front drop. French jet is black glass on a black enameled metal backing and it was used in the late Victorian era to emulate Whitby jet. It is usually more shiny and the pieces much more delicate than jet, and can be much more intricate in their designs, like this wonderful necklace. It is fun to see a similar necklace on Katherine Hepburn in this photo! I wonder which of her movies this was in? And the last photo shows one worn by Ava Gardner in a 1949 movie "The Great Sinner" which was set in the late Victorian era. View View View View View View View View Product #35884
