Swarovski's incomparable '80s cocktail jewelry. Big, bold and brassy with a sparkle all it's own. What was...quite simply is. Take S.A.L.'s buckle and chain link necklace emblazoned with large clear, crisp cut marquise rhinestones -- the talk of the town 30 years ago is still pleasing crowds. It's five large, curved, domed links are joined with marquise shaped connectors, cup set with oversized marquise rhinestones -- rhinestones with fire and ice only Swarovski could master. Bilateral link chains connect via toggle closure.
The necklace is adjustable to about 17 inches. Decorative center spans approximately 7 1/4 inches x 1 inch wide with a 1/4 inch thickness or profile. Marquise rhinestones are about 14 millimeters x 6 millimeters. Weight of the necklace is a generous approximate 82 grams.
Condition is excellent / pristine vintage. All components original and intact. All rhinestones retain outstanding brilliance. Absolutely no cloudy, yellow, gray or dead stones. All gold tone finish intact, front and back. No rubs or scratches. No damage / no repairs. Clean and RTW. Pristine vintage.
The reverse of the center link is signed: "S.A.L." (Swarovski America Limited) followed by copyright symbol. Style, materials, construction and mark date this necklace to the 1980s.
Swarovski. A rhinestone by any other name doesn't sparkle so complete. Find your time zone at Cody's.
