This exquisite necklace is five strands of deep red garnet beads with many alternating beads that are gold-over-sterling silver.
The solid sterling silver clasp is very unique...have never seen one like it. It's textured with a pebble-grain surface in a divided design. The way it closes is geniusly simple...the rod on one side goes into the tube on the other. It clicks in and the latch clicks over to the other side. Easier done than described.
The back of the clasp is hand etched SYLVIA SIMS with a STERLING stamp. When we tried to research this jewelry maker, we found many for Sylvia Syms, the actress. There was just one reference to Sims the jewelry person and that was that her pieces were sold only in upscale stores. So, there are at least two of her pieces in the world but none others that we could find.
The necklace measures 18 inches long. The clasp is 1 by 1 inch. The five strands of beads add up to about 1 1/4 inches wide. The strands are all about the same length so they fall over each other at the bottom which makes for a chunky cluster. You can twist this into a torsade, wear the clasp in the back or at side. Necklace weighs 131 grams.
Excellent vintage condition. From an upscale estate. We're proud to offer this rare designer necklace, at least one of two Sims pieces known to exist.
