Venetian foiled bead necklace in breathtaking colors with clear rock crystal spacer beads. These fiery Italian glass beads are foiled, and the resulting colors are phenomenal; the blues, oranges, golds and translucent opalescent beads are brilliant and varied. They may be antique rather than vintage, but the assembled necklace dates from the 1920s or '30s. Rock crystal beads used as spacers is common in Art Deco jewels. The foiled beads measure 18mm at largest and 9 mm at smallest; the spacers are 8mm at largest and 2mm at smallest. There is a secure barrel clasp and the white silk thread is strong. While the necklace is not perfectly symmetrical, this is not obvious when worn. There are no cracks, chips or other damage.
