This vintage necklace is made of red amber resin beads with genuine red amber beads in between. This red resin was an old Chinese material that was often carved into figurines...mostly large ones. It was not often used in making jewelry so this necklace is very unique.
The beads have a glowing translucence and a most vivid red color. They measure about 12 to 13mm wide. The slide-in box clasp is solid 14K yellow gold with a side latch. (The gold clasp was a good indicator that this was not an 'ordinary' bead necklace.)
The necklace measures 17 inches around. It weighs 44 grams. It's in excellent vintage condition with no notable flaws.
