Harlequin necklaces were a minor but engaging fashion in English antique jewellery towards the end of the 19th century.

Brightly coloured gemstones from the colonies of Ceylon and India were typically arranged like this – with round or oval pops of contrasting colour in pretty, crown-like settings hanging from a flexible fine gold chain of Indian influence.

Swipe through the photos to see the individual stones identified. The mismatch of colours gives these pieces a very contemporary feel.
