A lovely strand of graduated frosted glass beads c1940s.
The beads alternate graduated round with graduated oval, the back of the necklace finishes with all small round beads, the front has three rounds in the center.
The glass is a semi translucent soft blue-white similar to the color of Ceylon moonstones.
In bright light a subtle tinge of pink adds mystery to the beads, it looks very different depending on the background color- the darker the color the more blue they appear.
It is wired together with gold filled wire for strength and durability.
The necklace measures 32" long, the beads range from 5mm to 12mm round, the ovals are 9mm long by 7mm wide to 10mm by 18mm, it closes with a secure gold filled spring ring clasp.
Excellent condition, no damage or visible wear.
A wonderful glass bead necklace with a light and airy look and magical glow.
