This is an outstanding Castlecliff necklace with multiple stands of gold tone chains and red crystal beads with fluted gold tone spacers.
The camera doesn't capture the vibrancy of the red, and the gold really sets off the red.
Shortest strand is 14" L.
Necklace is signed and in excellent condition.
CASTLECLIFF OR CASTLEMARK: 1937 - 1977
Castlecliff originated as Castlemark by Clifford Furst and Joseph Bobley in 1937 but the jewelry was first marked in 1941 with the Castlecliff name and line introduced in 1945. The chief designer was William Markle who created bold, intricate well constructed Gothic, Renaissance and Art Deco designs, 3-dimensional, and tremblers on springs using gold plated, sterling silver, and silver plated base metals on the jewelry. The pieces contained faux pearls, faceted color rhinestones, lapis, jade, and carnelian plastic and ceramic stones. Mark: "Castlemark", "Cassandra" in 1957, "Castlecliff alone or with copyright symbol" after 1955
