Vintage 1960's A.B. Crystal Bead Necklace & Long Drop Cluster Earrings with Markus Jellinek Tension Screw Back Clips.
This is a lovely necklace comprised of a double strand of faceted aurora borealis crystal beads finished with a simple j-hook closure. Matching earrings are clip on style with tension screw for comfort and set with a cluster of crystal beads at the ear post....suspending a long bunch of crystal beads dripping like hanging grapes. Crystal beads have a flat surface or table on either side creating wonderful light reflection. Gold tone findings.
Necklace is unsigned. Earring backs are stamped with Pat. # 2,400,513 which was issued to Markus Jellinek in 1946 and used in many Miriam Haskell Earrings starting in the 1960's.
Necklace measures 16 inches long. Earrings measure 1-3/4 inches long by 3/4 inch wide. Crystal beads measure 6 millimeters in size.
Excellent vintage condition. Scintillating!
