Pictured is a faceted amber necklace that measures 16 ¾ inches, just slightly longer than a choker as can be seen in the photo. The necklace is beautifully composed of translucent amber in shades of egg yolk, honey, butterscotch and cherry with egg yolk spacers that may not be amber. The beads graduate slightly from just under ¼ inch to just a bit more than ¼ inch. The necklace is secure on its cord and has a gold tone spring clasp which appears to be newer. Condition is quite good with no damage visible to the naked eye; I do see a couple of superficial chips under 10X magnification. The piece is light weight (17 grams) as would be expected of amber, tests positive for amber (using the static electricity test), and has numerous inclusions. It is truly lovely, has great lustre, and absolutely sparkles under the light. I would date it to the early 1900s.
