Condition : Excellent , ...... No chips or repairs

Comments : I hardly know where to begin when I start singing the praises of authentic pools of light jewelry ! I love everything about it , the aesthetics of the materials themselves and the mystical lore that goes along with each and every real piece . .....I say 'real' , because to call them 'real' pools of light means that they are not drilled. ....... To drill the orbs its believed is to let all the luck inside run out . ......Like miniature crystal balls , full of magical properties like magnifying and turning images upside down !

Generally two types of wraps encase the un-drilled orbs to hold them in place . ......Floral wraps , used in earlier pieces, 1890 to 1910, with Art Nouveau influence that segued beautifully into the fashions and styles of the short Edwardian Period to around 1910. The plainer , slim wire wraps were used in the later Art Deco pieces through the 1930's. That totals forty years in popularity the first go-around ! Pools of light pieces are just as timeless today . They flatter each individual wearer , as the clear stones enhance each and every skin tone in a unique way . Plus they go with everything , from informal to fancy . ......

As noted above this necklace is in excellent condition. None of the rock crystal orbs are chipped or scratched and all are water-clear. Measuring a full 31 & 1/2" in length and kept closed with a barrel clasp . ( The clasp can be easily changed if desired. ) With a lovely patina throughout , I have not cleaned or polished this necklace .

As always delivered to you in a new velvet gift box ready to give or keep. ......
