Vintage Yemen Beads Necklace, with Indian Bicone Beads, Garnets, 78 cm (31 inches)
This is a beautifully quite delicate necklace most probably from mid 20th century. It has components from:
The bicone silver beads most probably from India - these beads are hollow silver and substantial and not filled with wax as are the modern beads today.
The round bicone cutout beads from Yemen - these beads are old and I have identified them from the last listing photo.
The old round purple (grape) garnets have worn edges around the drilling holes.
The silver spaces beads are well made and old. It has a hooked clasp for closing.
