A collectible vintage rhinestone necklace by Coro designers that has a Victorian revival style. The center piece pendant is an open design with scrolling in antiqued gold tone metal. It has multiple colors of rhinestones in green, blue topaz, fuchsia, and amethyst. The stones are set into a lovely floret design. The neck chain is tube links.
It’s origin dates to between 1948 to 1955. It is signed “Coro” in script without the copyright symbol on the pendant back. This necklace design is hard to find with the multiple colors of rhinestones and also in excellent condition such as this one is. The spring ring clasp has at some point been replaced with a lobster pinch style clasp. Otherwise all components are original.
The full length is 16.0 inches. The pendant design at the center is 3.0 inches wide by 1.5 inches high.
This same necklace in blue rhinestones is featured in Julia C. Carroll’s book “Collecting Costume Jewelry 202 - The Basics of Dating Jewelry 1935 to 1980” on page 113.
