There seems to be a debate as to whether or not this necklace is Bakelite. No one seems to have a definitive answer, but whatever it is, it is unique and wonderful.
The necklace consists of a large, red disc that has a raised sculpture of a flower bud and leaves. The disc measures 2-1/4 inches in diameter and is suspended from a gold-tone chain with hanging metal leaves. The leaves are very lightweight and are beautifully shaped to look like the real thing. The matching earrings have a red disc at the top and utilize the same sculptural leaves that are on the necklace.
They are very lightweight, making them comfortable and easy to wear.
The necklace measures 17 inches in length with an additional 2-1/4 inches for the disk. The earrings are 2-1/2 inches in length.
The set is in very good vintage condition, with some scratching to the red disks. The earrings are clip ons and hold securely. I've never seen another set like this and it really makes a wonderful eye-catcher for any outfit.
