Take a good look, but don't linger too long. A necklace this rare won't wait around forever. What makes it so special? We could say that it's the 180-carats of opulent orange carnelian. But that wouldn't be entirely true...
Yes, this gem was among the most valued possessions of ancient Greek nobility and Roman emperors. And yes, carnelian commanded respect among the Etruscans, Egyptians and Persians. But what sets our necklace apart has nothing to do with history. The remarkable rarity of this necklace has everything to do with price. Thanks to an incredible deal, we can offer you the rarest variety of gemstone known to man: the unprecedented price kind.
That's right. The Augustus Necklace, a stunning 180-carats of carnelian is yours for an unprecedented price!
Keep in mind that while we offer a great price, we did nothing to diminish the value of this impressive piece of jewelry. Shop anywhere else and you can find similar strands that sell for hundreds more. We even found a recent auction catalog listing a pre-Columbian necklace of carnelian beads for $19,500.00!
The Augustus Necklace features 180-carats of smooth, disc-shaped carnelian beads. Each is hand-knotted onto the 18" strand and the entire length secures with a 14K gold-layered lobster clasp. Don't miss this rare opportunity to own one of history's most celebrated gemstones.
