Today if you can find an authentic Georgian or Victorian necklace for sale in most cases you would see a chain which was added (later) to make it longer/or more convenient to use/wear - most of authentic Georgian necklaces a made as chokers - Short necklaces were very popular during the Georgian period, and some of the most desirable styles included dog collars or chokers, also many necklaces had a ribbons instead of a clasp, and the people were smaller and more slim at that time. As For the age, this beauty has very minor flaws due to wear and age, all paste stones are present, no repairs, no problems! The pastes are highly sparkly!!! It looks like platinum with diamonds!
