A Necklace of Old Venetian African Trade Beads In Brick Red and Blue With Ancient Blue Spacers M00519
This necklace is made of a variety of old Venetian African Trade beads in Brick Red and Blue, put together with ancient transparent blue Nila beads from the Islamic Period, and contemporary copper bead caps protecting the old beads.
The necklace is approximately 20" long. Venetian beads are approximately 12mm in diameter, the focal larger bead is about 16mm. These beads date to the 1800-1990s. The small ancient blue spacers are excavated beads from West Africa, where they are found in abundance along the ancient sub-Saharan trade caravan routes. They are approximately 1000 years old.
The old beads are in very good shape, but given their age, some nocks could be expected. Please see the photos for detail.

This 18' necklace is the last of the set, and I am so glad that I purchased it. Is beautiful with the pink coral and the silver accents, is a combination that I can wear in different ways. Very satisfied with the workmanship and quality of these pieces. Thanks.
Gorgeous necklace, really excited to wear it for special occasions!
Just received my necklace, This is exactly what I need to start 2021. My favorite combination of colours : bright orange and dark green. Nicely done! This is not just to show it off on my black cashmere turtleneck, I can hold it in my hands , look at it and enjoy it.
Anna (seller) was very accommodating, answered my questions and provide extra pictures of the necklace for me. Thank you Anna!
I purchased a second necklace to add to a previous one from this seller. The craftsmanship and beauty of the coral and pearls combined with sterling silver gives it antique-like effect that I love. Fast shipping and impecable packaging. Thanks.
Beautiful and artfully designed necklace. Love the pearls and the silver combined with the coral. Fast shipping and great connection with the seller.
This is a special piece for rock lovers, really beautiful, every detail special....even though the seller made all the right moves with shipping, the overburdened usps had delays. Nonetheless, the gorgeous necklace arrived in perfect shape. Bravo ! This shop highly recommended.
