Black Faceted Glass Bead Necklace and Matching Earrings, c. 1960Black Faceted Glass Bead Necklace and Matching Earrings, c. 1960Black Faceted Glass Bead Necklace and Matching Earrings, c. 1960Black Faceted Glass Bead Necklace and Matching Earrings, c. 1960

These costume necklace and matching earrings are in the manner of what is sometimes called "French jet," meaning glass imitation of jet. They are opaque and, yes, jet black faceted beads. In the 18" necklace, they graduate from about 12 to 6 mm., with the clip-back earrings each measuring 3/4" in diameter.

The necklace's box clasp is set with faceted glass "aurora borealis," which helps to date the piece. Each earring is stamped "MADE ITALY". By this mark and the appearance of the metal in each case, it does not seem they were made together, yet I think they probably were because the beads match so well.

Everything is intact. Their condition really couldn't be better for items with age and wear. They are sure to delight for many occasions.
