Big, bold, and beautiful … that’s the only way to describe this vintage amber bead necklace. The beads have an intriguing visual effect because of the many inclusions. These beads are pressed amber. Each bead was created in two halves, and pressed together, giving the appearance of a single, larger piece. The beads are strung on white thread (no clasp), and the necklace measures approximately 30” long. The larger beads are 1-1/4”; the smaller beads are 5/8”. The necklace is in excellent condition, and dates back to the 1930s - '40s.
