Lovely AMETHYST Bead 30" Necklace with Gold Filled Findings
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
Art and I came into an estate of costume jewelry about a month ago and I am just in the process of getting it all up. So the necklace I offer now is one of a number that appear to have come from the same location - more than likely Hong Kong (as the lady was a traveler). Fish hook clasp.
AGE: C.1960 or so
ITEM: A dark amethyst bead necklace with gold filled findings. The amethyst beads are of a dark hue, very clean with very few inclusions. Coloring like this doesn't come by too often - the darker the hue, the better the amethyst! I'd say this strand is a couple shades short of being GEM quality but it does come close!
CONDITION: Very nice with no problems I can spot. The necklace is strung on string cording and, sooner or later, the entire necklace is going to need a restringing.
METAL CONTENT: Gold Filled
HALLMARKS: 14/20 along with a maker's mark that I do not recognize. If I am correct, the beads, as well as the clasp are 1/20th 14K Gold Filled. If I am wrong, then the gold beads and the clasp are 14K Solid Gold.
SIZE: Length of the necklace is 30". Round beads are 6mm and 8mm; teardrops are 15mm long.
WEIGHT: 38.5 grams
FINAL COMMENTS: Lovely!
