Vintage Art Glass and Aurora Borealis Rhinestone Festoon Swag Choker Necklace.
This gorgeous necklace has a magnificent focal point. It is a dark Wedgwood blue, reverse-carved melon ribbed, faceted oval art glass stone, and it holds a secret! In just the right light, it reveals a flash of amethyst purple deep inside.
The blue stone is set in the center of 6 swags of round amethyst purple rhinestones and 4 of those swags have a rich Aurora Borealis finish. Among the swags are 5 marquise shape, pale purple stones with open-back dogtooth settings. The hardware is all goldtone and it has a j-hook closure.
It is unmarked, making this an Unsigned Beauty and it dates circa 1950s-1960s. It measures about 14 ½" long and the drop in the center is about 1 ¼".
Condition: no broken, sick or missing stones; AB finish is fabulous; no tarnish on metal. It hardly looks used.
This is a gorgeous necklace and our pictures barely do it justice. Wear it with a casual outfit, evening wear or a business wardrobe, and collect the compliments! Don't miss out on this one!
