Stunning vintage necklace. This single strand aurora borealis round crystal necklace shines with all the colours of the rainbow. The cut crystal necklace has 17 6mm crystal beads on each side leading down to a series of slightly larger beads leading down to the largest 12mm crystal bead at the centre. Each crystal has a small glass seed bead between them which prevents the crystals from getting scratched and also allows the necklace to hang very nicely.
This is very delicate and has a beautiful single clear round 8mm rhinestone silver tone clasp. It looks beautiful from the back as well as in the front and would make a fantastic bridal necklace. It would also look gorgeous with a little black dress adding a bit of classy sparkle.
The necklace is in very good condition and probably dates from the 1950s or 60s.
The necklace weighs 29 grams. It measures just under 50 cm long. Presented in a beautiful satin drawstring bag.
The aurora borealis (AB) crystals are coated with a metalic finish – this technique was developed in the 1950s and revolutionised the the jewellery business.
