This pretty choker style necklace is made of a variety of dyed mother of pearl pieces and tiny beads that appear to be made of glass. There are actually three strands that are twisted to form a wide choker and there are organically formed shell pieces as well as pieces that appear to be m.o.p. buttons. Between the shells and buttons are very small, light amber colored beads. The gold colored clasp is marked Japan. The necklace comes with a pair clip on earrings that aren‘t exactly the same but I believe they were purchased and worn together. The earrings are made of the shell pieces only with tiny, clear glass bead accents. The backs are silver colored and they are marked Japan. I believe these pieces are from the 1950’s.
The necklace measures about 16” in length excluding the hook which fits a 15” neck comfortably but nothing larger. Also, the necklace can be wound around the wrist to make a fun and funky bracelet as an accent to a summer outfit (see the photo). The earrings measure about 1 1/8” in diameter. All of the pieces are in very nice condition with minimal wear and no noticeable damage. The earring clips work well.
Priced and sold as the necklace and pair of earrings.
