One of a Kind ~ Serious Art Deco Necklace ~ An Astonishing Rainbow of Austrian Crystals spaced with matching rhinestone rhondells ~ Enchanting jewel of a lifetime ~ This impressive strand of crystal jewels stops everyone dead in their tracks. I have worn this piece several times and Im constantly being accosted by women with touchy hands at my neck ! From the 1920's or slightly earlier, these fascinating faceted crystals were made in Austria, but this necklace was made in France. Imagine stepping out for the evening in Paris or New York with this dazzling sensation dripping from your neck. This glamorous strand of jewels is 17 1/2" long and is very weighty. The necklace weighs a whopping 64 ounces. The four largest crystals are 15 mm or 5/8". The pink, amethyst and citrine crystals are six sided facets while the cobalt and peridot crystals are 3 sided facets. The seven largest crystals are flanked with pairs of matching rhinestone rhondells. The pastel shades fade in precise grades down to 6 mm where the necklace is finished with an antique brass box clasp of Victorian decor. This piece is not signed, but Im 100% certain of its French origin. The entire strand is in excellent clean condition. It has been restrung on strong monofilament to prevent any chance of breaking. The silver metal end beads are new, for safety as well. Upon really serious close inspection, I detect a couple of very minor flea bites on the larger crystals and the antique brass box clasp has some light green oxidation that can be cleaned if you desire. If you dont like the brass patina, a little bit of denture cleaner and a tooth brush will do the trick, or I will do it for you upon request ~
