Sarah Coventry has such a wide array of designs and this is no exception. On a gold toned, elongated and narrow link, the chain holds 10 A.B. Rivoli Crystals and one A.B. glass pear shaped crystal. The Rivoli's start at 5/16" in diameter progressive up to 1/2" diameter and equal 5 each side leading up to the pear shaped crystal. This would be why it is named "Crystal Fire".
The beauty of the Rivoli crystal, is the vast array of colors coming from the crystals . As a matter of fact the only "Permanent" part of the intricate design of these crystals are the ever changing colors by any light, at all. We find it hard to display the real beauty of these high end crystal. I have and oval brooch that the harnessing all the pastel colors, primarily the greens, makes it difficult to list, this however is a great problem.
Crystal Fire was designed and distributed in 1965. I'm not sure how long they kept distributing this necklace but this design can be found in the book " Identifying Sarah Coventry Jewelry 1949-2009" by Sturdivant and Crabtree.
It is a size 8 with a weight of 19 grams. It is in very good condition for being the same age as me. I would be considered scraps for repair compared to this. I hope you enjoyed the images.
