This 7-row, flat "ribbon" and patterned Art Deco flapper necklace is hand woven with a background of white glass beads, with light purple, light blue, grass green and a tiny bit of black glass beads for its geometric and floral-like design. These necklaces were enormously popular in the 1920s and many women made them for themselves. It's becoming more difficult to find the patterned ones in excellent condition with all the beads still intact. This is a great piece from the age of The Great Gatsby and Downton Abbey.
Laying flat the necklace measures 33" inches at its longest point (One tassel starts and the other hangs lower on the necklace for an asymmetrical look). The wearable length of the necklace (Top, largest opening that goes over your head) is 40" inches.
It is a 13" inches drop from the bottom of the necklace opening to where the strands form 14 rows across, as well as to the bottom of the longest tassel.
Each separate 7-row strand is 3/8" of an inch wide. Where the two strands connect for 14 rows across, it measures 3/4" of an inch wide. Each tassel has four loops (One in each color of white, black, green and purple). A light blue, round bead separates each 7-row strand from the tassel loops for a finished look. This classic flapper necklace is in excellent condition; no flaws at all to note.
