This is a Dichroic Art Glass pendant embedded with machine cut vintage Austrian Crystals in fuchsia, surrounded by glass with the appearance of an opal. This eye catching pendant is another piece from the yesterdays tomorrows collection. The crystals jump out as they sparkle in shifting light. the art glass, in the background, make the fuchsia crystals pop and seem to float within the glass.
The vintage Austrian crystals are from new old stock. They were created before the onset of world war 2. When the conflict began, many countries banned jewelry from countries that were taken over by the Germans. Because Austria was occupied by the Germans, the factories closed and everything was stored away. The jewelry industry was decimated. After the war ended, it took years or the Austrian jewelry business to recover. The possibility exists that the crystals I placed in this pendant could be anywhere from 60 to 80 years old!
The measurements of the pendant are: 1 1/2 in length, 1/2 inch wide. the pendant comes with an 18 inch plated snake chain and a 2 inch extension chain.
This can be worn in a casual setting or a grand event.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great time shopping!
