This is a genuine, Royal Butterscotch, Egg yolk, Baltic amber bead necklace. The beads date to the 1920s-40s and are faceted on three sides. The beads were tested using a salt water float test and they floated beautifully. An amber expert confirmed that they are genuine, good quality, natural amber beads faceted almost 100 years ago. The beads range in colour from butterscotch to yellow with swirls.
The necklace has been professionally restrung using the original bead tips and a sterling silver lobster clasp has been added due to the condition of the original string and the missing clasp. The necklace was restrung on beige, no stretch, extra strong, 0.8mm, nylon jewelry thread. It now hangs beautifully when worn. One bead has a chip on one edge and I have included a photo to show that it is not an issue in the overall beauty of the necklace. There are minor chips at the ends of some of the beads which are visible under magnification not visible when worn because they are where one bead meets the next.
Necklace measures 21.25 inches. Beads measure 5/8, 6/8, 7/8 and 1 inch long (1.5 cm, 1.9 cm, 2.2 cm and 2.5 cm). The necklace weighs 38 grams (1.34 ounces). Natural amber, not pressed.
An impressive necklace of beautiful genuine, natural, vintage faceted amber beads to wow lovers of amber.
