Welcome to my shop, The Strands of Time. I hope that you will enjoy browsing through the fine vintage and antique jewelry items in the shop and find something that is special. Please refer to “Terms of Sale” on each page.
This pretty black onyx bead necklace is new-old-stock from a SAKS Fifth Avenue warehouse that closed in the 1980's.
The necklace has two 28" strands of beautiful 6mm black onyx stones. The onyx beads are 6mm in diameter. The rice pearls (sometimes called Rice Krispie pearls) are white with a hint of platinum and about 9mm x 4mm. The larger gold beads are 5mm. The necklace weighs 63.5 grams.
Several of the gold beads have "dimples" or small dents in the gold that were caused by bumps from the harder onyx beads.
The closure is hallmarked "14K" on the tiny tab that sticks out from the insert.
I am always open to reasonable offers but, if items are reduced or on sale, they are already at the lowest prices.
Thank you for visiting my shop and please come back again. I add new items regularly.
NOTE: I offer lay-a-way on all items. Please refer to “Terms of Sale” on each page.
