Divine vintage necklace. This art deco rainbow iris glass necklace is stunning. Dating from the 1920s or 30s the necklace features a brass chain with a feature bib of iris glass rhinestones. The spring ring fastener is very secure and the whole necklace is in very good condition. Although not stamped I think this is probably Czech.
Sometimes called rainbow glass, iris glass was developed to mimic rainbow quartz and looks like a clear quartz crystal with delicate red, blue and green coloured stripes. It always looks very delicate and in this necklace this is very evident. It really captures the style of the time.
The necklace weighs only 6 grams. It measures 38.5 cm. Presented in a beautiful satin drawstring bag.
