This piece is one of the best vintage pieces we've seen in terms of quality and elegance. The style is as fresh today as it was fifty years ago, featuring a mix of stunning green and white Italian Murano glass beads that are of such high quality they appear in weight and texture to be jade, aventurine and quartz. Some beads are round, while others are shaped like river stone, and they are spaced with faceted Austrian crystal beads and woven together with a delicate gold-tone chain link. The clasp is stunning, offering a very large green bead surrounded by 15 crystals. The piece measures 15" in length. It is unsigned but most certainly comes from West Germany, mid century. It was purchased in the famous Brussels antique market and is in excellent condition. An absolutely outstanding addition to your collection!
