Georgian Sealed Goldstone Vial Necklace

$1,800

Sold!

Modeled in the shape of a gourd (note the air bubbles on surface of the glass from when it was blown), this Georgian goldstone aka aventurine glass vial is fitted in gold with a moveable handle attached to a gold band cinched around its middle. The gold stopper is sealed in place with red wax. Mysterious! What does it hold? We (barely) resisted the urge to open it and find out. Amulet vibes.
