This is an eye catching vintage opalite moonstone glass and Chinese cinnabar bead necklace with sterling silver clasp. The clasp and end caps are unmarked but test as sterling. The cinnabar beads are carved red lacquer cinnabar.
This necklace measures 19" long. The cinnabar beads are 15mm, opalite round beads are 10mm, and the large opalite beads in the center are 20mm x 25mm.
Condition is good. These are vintage beads that have been restrung with newer clasp and end caps.
I love the glow of these opalite beads and they contrast nicely with the red carved cinnabar beads.
