Here is a fun necklace by the Monet Company, circa 1960 to 1970. It is a graduated bead necklace. Each lucite bead glows in a beautiful bluish tanzanite like purple color, very pretty. The beads are transparent.
There are 36 beads from a size of about 1/2" long, 5/8" long and 3/4" long. Between each oval shaped bead is a flattened silvertone bead disk.
The length is about 28 inches long, falling 14 inches on your neckline, right above the breast line. Includes a very short chain and a lobster claw clasp. You could have a chain extension added but this slips easily over your head. The Monet hangtag is present.
Condition is excellent. Comes from North Carolina estate.
