Art Deco black jet neckpiece, probably worn as mourning jewelry. very large, obviously for a wealthy person. Since there is no more black jet in North America, I heard they found some in Russia, this is a pretty rare piece. The necklace/belt measures 19 inches long, and is about 5 inches wide. Two large hand cut, hand faceted black jet round pieces with a large center stone, surrounded by 11 smaller stones, and emanating from these two stones are 22 strands of black jet beads, on both sides of the larger stones, these 44 strands of black jet come together behind another large round piece, and then exit from this large stone into 5 strands of black jet beads of varying sizes, ending with 5 tassels of black jet beads, and in between those are 4 strands of irridescent shell like beads interspersed with black jet. Whew! As you can see by the pictures it is a magnificent piece. In very good condition for the age, no missing beads, but it is a delicate piece. It fastens behind the neck with a hook and strands of embroidery thread. No makers name, I think  this was made by a seamstress rather than a jeweler. This would make a fabulous addition to any number of dresses, or outfits, could have been worn as a belt also.  Thanks for shopping in the Land of Enchantment!
