Reduced ! For your consideration is this large and stunning necklace by Robert DeMario. Founded in 1945, DeMario operated until the mid 1960s. DeMario is renowned for elaborate pieces that resemble Miriam Haskell's. By some accounts...he even worked for the Haskell company. This masterpiece has 4 strands of aurora borealis, brown and green crystal beads divided by rhinestone rondelles and black space beads. The green glass bead are the color of chrysophase. The strands meet at the top with green rhinestone bars and a nice rhinestone flower clasp and extension.
The necklace measures 18 and 3/4 inches when hooked on the furthest link on the end of the extension but the 2 inch extension allows you to wear it at a shorter length if desired. The length of the actual 4 strands - bar to bar across measure is 16,18,20 and 22 inches. This piece definitely makes a bold and beautiful statement.
The necklace is in excellent vintage condition. I see no damage or anything missing and the only thing I notice is a tiny bit of wear to the aurora borealis coating on a couple beads. This is very minor but I try to report everything that I see.
