This is a very simple string of ungraduated French jet beads, from the 1950s or earlier. This substance was a luxury item, being the best substitute for the relatively rare and expensive Whitby jet, from which it is considered indistinguishable in use. It is not, in fact, jet at all, but a type of glass, with all the beauty, workability and shine of the genuine article.
This string is in excellent condition. The fastenings appear to be gold. The beads are not knotted.
It is quite short, only about 16 inches (41 cms) long. I haven't been able to find any faults in it.
