COMMENTS: This intriguing necklace dates to the 1920's Art Deco era. It features large sized hand carved amethyst and rose quartz beads. Because of the nature of hand crafting all of the beads vary slightly. The clasp is also set with a generously sized rose quartz carving. The beads have faceted glass spacers and three of those are missing. There may be some stretch to the chain or this could be the way the necklace was made. It lays nicely when worn and the decorative clasp can be turned to the front, back or even side. The findings were originally gold washed but that has mostly worn away with age. This necklace is pictured as we received it. Cleaning & polishing are available by request prior to shipping.
