Ω OUTSTANDING VICTORIAN CABOCHON GARNET GARLAND CHOKER

Created in the Esclavage style, this breath taking choker necklace consists of five deep rich red foil backed oval garnet cabochons, each with spearhead drop and suspended from a beautifully articulated handmade snake chain with a swag between each garnet drop.  Each of the cabochons has a fine rope twist surrounding the bezel.   The reverse of four of the drops is a plain gold closed back and the central drop features a locket to reverse with original domed glass encasing a flat woven braid beautifully preserved.  the crowning glory is the original red shaped and fitted leather case with eau de nil velvet interior and cream satin lining marked for Charles Desprez of Bristol.
