This vintage necklace delivers some 1950s glitz in a single strand, making it more wearable than most 1950s necklaces. It is a warm-toned necklace of glass amber crystals and filigree beads, interspersed with fluted bead caps and rope-twist spacer beads.
The amber crystals have a half-bead coating of aurora borealis providing interesting glints of purple, peacock blues and gold, and reduce in size towards the back of the necklace. The filigree beads are a gold-tone metal, with a glistening blackberry texture.
The necklace is fitted with a hook and crystal extender chain so it can be worn collar or choker length.
Dimensions: The length is adjustable from 38 cm (15″) to 43 cm (17″). The largest bead at centre is 1.3 cm (0.5″).
Condition: This vintage 1950s necklace is in good to very good vintage condition. Some gold-tone bead caps and spacers have dulled, mainly towards the back of the necklace, but the filigree and crystal beads are in excellent condition. It has been securely re-strung at some point with nylon.
