This vintage S.A.L. (Swarovski) gold plated choker necklace features a triangular black glass stone, surrounded by bright, clear rhinestones. The heavy, gold tone curb chain gives it a high quality look and feel. This is a classic Swarovski design that will go with everything. Very elegant looking - and goes from office to date night with pizzazz!
Measurements: The 17 inch (43.2 mm) choker length necklace has a fold over clasp. The rigid center design is approximately 1.5 inches across its top ends.
Condition: S.A.L. jewelry tends to maintain its top notch condition, and this one is in excellent condition as well. Please use the zoom feature to review all photographs, as they are an important part of the description.
Marks: On the back of the bar near the clasp, it is stamped "S.A.L.©." This hallmark was used from 1977 to 1989.
In 1862, Austrian Daniel Swarovski founded the Swarovski Company and in 1892 developed a new technique for faceting glass crystals. Swarovski was a huge supplier of Austrian rhinestones and crystals to American jewelry manufacturers. Daniel Swarovski and Christian Dior (no wonder their jewelry looks so similar!) developed the iridescent Aurora Borealis stone in 1955. In 1977, the Swarovski American, Ltd. company (S.A.L. hallmark) started producing their own costume jewelry, switching to the Swan Logo from 1989 to present.
NOTE: If you like the Dior / Swarovski look, please check the others I have in my current inventory by putting S.A.L. and DIOR in my shop search.
