These beautiful beads are Venetian glass and date from the 1970's. The larger 5/8" beads are a beautiful dark aqua color; there are 23 of them, hand-decorated with pink and gold enamel work. They alternate with smaller, lighter aqua glass beads. There are brass trim pieces between each bead. The brass clasp is a screw-type and is original. This necklace is 25" long and is in excellent original condition.
