Vintage 1930's Art Deco Unique Faceted Rock Crystal Necklace Bracelet Sterling Demi Parure.
This is a gorgeous set comprised of rock crystal (quartz) faceted into very unique shaped beads....appearing to be a bell shape with a bit of a triangular outline. The necklace crystals are graduated in size and both sides of the strand are strung with the flat side of the crystals (bell) facing inward coming together in the center of the necklace. The faceted rock crystals in the bracelet are all one size and strung in one direction. Both necklace and bracelet crystals are strung on fine sterling silver chain, finished with sterling findings and clasps. High quality set.
Necklace and bracelet are both stamped sterling on the clasps.
Necklace measures 16-3/4 inches long. Faceted crystals measure a smaller 5-1/2 millimeters in size near the end (clasp) graduating in size up to 12.5 millimeters in size at the center. Bracelet measures 7-1/2 inches long. Faceted crystals measure 9.5 millimeters in size. Millimeter measurement is measured at the flat side (widest) area of the crystals.
Upon very close inspection you will notice a bit of darkening inside the crystals on the necklace strand where the sterling chain has deposited a little patina (tarnish). Vintage condition is otherwise excellent. Scintillating!
