Large, oval striated glass turquoise cabochons garner attention in this wonderful 1960s vintage pendant necklace and earrings set in goldtone. Framed with two rows of prong set chaton rhinestones, the pendant is attached via a strand of goldtone filigree capped faux pearls, spaced with crimped goldtone metal beads. A 6 chain tassel culminating in faux pearls dangles from below. The clip earrings follow the theme (sans pearls) with a faux turquoise cab surrounded by a row of clear chaton rhinestones. Turquoise took center stage in 1960's jewelry. Combined with rhinestones and faux pearls, as in the demi offered, their presence is showcased for maximum exposure.
The necklace is adjustable from about 14 inches to 17 inches with a charmed goldtone extension chain and hook style closure. The large faux pearls each measure about 10 millimeters. The pendant portion drops an additional approximate 3 1/2 inches including bail and tassel. WIdth is about 1 3/8 inches. Profile or height is about 1/2 inch. The glass faux turquoise cabs in all pieces are each about 23 millimeters x 17 millimeters. The earrings measure approximately 1 1/4 inches x 1 inch x 1/4 inch. Weight of the necklace and earring set is about 72 grams.
Condition is excellent vintage. All components intact. All faux pearls retain nacre and luster. All rhinestones intact and brilliant. Turquoise cabs are free from chips, nicks, cracks or breaks. All have wonderful striations and are color matched. All goldtone finishes intact, front and back. Earring clips strong and secure. All soldering secure. No damage / no repairs. Please do keep in mind that this is a 1960s vintage set and it will not appear brand new.
The only marking on the set is the utility "Pat. Pend." on the ear clips mechanisms. One of those unsigned beauties destined to become a star on it's own terms.
