Hattie Carnegie coordinates her jewels from clasp to clip. Her '60s vintage necklace features three rows of graduated faux pearls. Tiny seed pearls separate each bead with the addition of sparkling rhinestone roundels interspersed through center span rows. Amethyst colored free form glass beads augment middle strand. Box clasp ties it all together with a bezel set, faceted rectangular glass stone, beautifully backed with iridescent patterned purple foil. Matching clip earrings complement with a cluster of faux pearls and purple glass stone. A single pearl in each is rimmed with a wired arc of tiny simulated seed pearls.
The necklace's top strand is a fixed approximate 16 inches with push in box clasp. Bottom strand drapes to about 18 1/2 inches. Faux pearls range from 6 millimeters to 11 millimeters, center purple glass stones, 28 millimeters x 11 millimeters. Clasp is 1 inch x 3/4 inch x 3/8 inch. Earrings are approximately 1 1/4 inches x 3/4 inch with a 5/8 inch profile or height. Weight of the necklace and earrings set is 96 grams.
