This is a stunning vintage Art Deco Chinese export rock crystal bead necklace. It is a choker length with beautiful hand faceted beads. The slide catch is adorned with a Chinese character and it is marked Silver on the reverse. The beads are graduated and hand knotted on white silk cord. It is hard to convey the beauty of these rock crystal necklaces in photographs - they are so much nicer than the glass beads. The beads have been tested with a gemstone tester and register as quartz.
The necklace is 15 inches long and it is in lovely condition. I see one or two very tiny fleabites but nothing that is noticeable or that detracts from the appearance of the necklace.
