60s Four Strand Black Bead Necklace with Aurora Borealis Crystals

This fun costume jewelry necklace dates to the late 1950s or early 1960s, and it features four strands of graduated length faceted black plastic beads, with tiny round gold tone spacer beads, and diamond-cut, aurora borealis glass crystal accent beads. The glass crystals reflect green and purple in the changing light and are very pretty.

The necklace has t-bar spacers at the ends that are oxidized, matte silver tone metal, and there is a hook and more beads at the end to secure the necklace. The black beads are plastic, and so the necklace is light weight for its size. Possibly made in Germany or Japan as similar pieces were in the time period, but there is no signature.

In good condition, with some light wear on the bead facets, and the spacer bars are not shiny, they have not been cleaned but appear to have a heavy age patina.

The longest strand of the necklace is 21 inches, the shortest is 16 inches, the largest beads is 12mm.
