Vintage mid- to late 1980s hand-knotted, opera length necklace features 9mm pale pink rose quartz beads, “spaced” by carnation pink nubs of silk thread. The translucent beads pick up an extra hint of pinkness from the thread running through them, creating a lovely effect overall. There is no closure; the necklace is long enough to simply slip over the head.
This piece comes from my personal collection, dating from the half-decade or so when I became a human magnet for long gemstone bead strands in new varieties to combine as “twist” necklaces or wear on their own with a long, slouchy sweater.
Measuring 32” long and weighing 95 grams, this pretty bead necklace is in excellent condition.
