We are pleased to offer this exceptional Original by Robert Convertible Necklace Brooch Set.
This set includes a necklace that can be worn alone, a brooch that can also be worn alone or it can be hooked to the necklace and worn as a drop. The outstanding faceted beads are a deep orange and each bead is black on one half. There are two tiny spacer beads between each larger bead and the box clasp has a 3-dimensional rose on the front with the Original by Robert mark on the reverse.
The 3-dimensional pendant has a pin as well as a spring-ring hook so it can be worn either way. It has a black filigree flower shape with rows of tiny orange spacer beads attached. Five orange and black beads that match the necklace are mounted on the front with several black curlicue `leaves' and a gold tone leaf. It has 2 black chain dangles with rhinestone-studded starburst ball drops; each is a different length. It also has the Original by Robert mark.
The necklace measures about 18 ½" long, the pendant is 1 ½" across the top and 3 ¾" from the top to bottom of the longest dangle. The mark on this set was used from 1942 to 1979.
Excellent Condition: little to no wear; the clasp and pin back work well; the finish on the beads is excellent. It has one pinprick size spot of wear on the gold leaf at the top of the brooch where it rubs a black filigree leaf.
This is a beautiful necklace with fabulous, warm and rich colors. It is a unique beauty and our pictures just don't do it justice. This is one that looks better in person! We are always offering a nice selection of jewelry and other vintage goodies, so please take a look through our shop. We would be pleased to combine shipping on multiple purchases.
