This vintage necklace or choker is very unique. The design is very delicate looking and earthy. It has a round carved floral and leaf disc in the center. The disk is studded with small clear rhinestones. There are three elaborately carved ovals on either side of the center piece. Each oval has a small flower in the center that is graced with a small rhinestone. The floral pieces are attached to a chain that is painted in the same beige color as the carved pieces. It has a simple hook clasp that can be adjusted a little bit to either lengthen or shorten the choker. It is unsigned.
We have not been able to determine the material that the pieces were carved from. They are very light weight and could be some form of composite material or possibly balsa wood. We have not come across any other pieces like this.
This choker would look fabulous with a lightweight summer dress, blouse or top. However, it would still be beautiful on anything any time of the year.
The necklace is approximately 18" long. The clasp appears to have been repaired at some point.
The condition is just fair. There is one small rhinestone missing from the center piece and a few of the rhinestones have darkened over the decades. The paint on the chain is very worn. The wear just makes the piece more interesting and clearly says vintage jewelry.
