1970s amethyst crystal bead necklace; polished purple donut beads. Natural bead necklace is 18 inches long and has a strong barrel clasp. Beautiful amethyst, quartz crystal beads.
Natural amethyst is carved into puffy, donut shapes. Lots of lovely color variation. The presentation is very purple. The beads were hand cut and polished to a satin finish. Very nice work.
The beads are strung on nylon. This was the most common component in the 70s. It is quite fluid and drapes very well. There are about 150 beads here that graduate in size. I have not counted each bead. This is a generous approximation.
Wear with amethyst earrings or gold! These are great beads. The old style barrel clasp is strong and holds perfectly. A terrific vintage look that was very popular in the early to mid 1970s.
You could take this apart and use these terrific beads to make an extra long necklace by adding real or faux pearls or gold beads. There are enough beads here that you could have a pair of earrings, a necklace and a bracelet using that method !
Condition is above excellent.
