vintage necklace

  • Fantastic rainbow Millefiori and crystal necklace and bracelet set. A  very colourful necklace and bracelet made with gorgeous Millefiori beads and coloured glass crystal beads. It really is like wearing a rainbow that catches the light beautifully. Probably not vintage these beads are strung with coloured string and knotted between each bead. Both the necklace and bracelet fasten with a lobster claw clasp (indicating that they are made more recently). Wear this set with anything! It is delicious. Necklace measures 60 cms and necklace measures 22-30 cms (a chain allows adjustable lengths) and together they weigh 81 grammes. Presented in a satin drawstring bag.
  • Wow - this is an exceptional Exquisite aurora borealis bicone crystal necklace. This signed necklace by Exquisite is in fantastic condition and the aurorua borealis (ab) crystals are coated to reflect rainbow colours and pick up on whatever you are wearing.  It features 2 strands of graduating crystals and has a beautiful ab flower rhinestone clasp. It is very unusual because most crystal necklaces have round crystals and the bicone crystals reflect the light fantastically. It probably dates from the late 1950s or 1960s because the ab coating was not created before the mid 50s. I would describe the condition as very good with hardly any sign of wear.  A lovely necklace that could be paired with bridal wear or add a fabulous sparkle to formal wear. But it would look great at any time - a truly timeless classic piece of jewellery. Presented in a satin drawstring bag Necklace Length 40mm x width 20 mm at its widest part. Exquisite was a UK jewellery producer based in Birmingham. They started signing their pieces in the 50s so there are unsigned pieces from before that period. They closed in the 70s.
  • A very pretty Exquisite pink leaf enamel necklace. This is an unsigned necklace by Exquisite and features the recognisable bow tag. It features 10 small cold painted enamel segments in pink and cream and gold tone metal. It is a  delicate leaf and flower design.  The necklace has a chain and a hook clasp which means it can be worn as a choker or longer depending on your neck size. It probably dates from the 1950s. I would describe the condition as fairly good the front shows some signs of wear on the metal and there is more wear on the reverse where the links have rubbed together. It is a much-loved piece but still looks really lovely on. A lovely summer and feminine necklace. Presented in a satin drawstring bag Necklace Length 430mm x width 15 mm at its widest part. Exquisite was a UK jewellery producer based in Birmingham. They started signing their pieces in the 50s so there are unsigned pieces from before that period. They closed in the 70s. ).
  • A beautiful Jewelcraft blue modernist enamel necklace. This is an unusual necklace signed by Jewelcraft. It features 17 small cold painted enamel pieces in powder blue and gold tone metal. It is a modernist design that could be representing wheat sheaves. The necklace has a chain and a hook clasp which means it can be worn as a choker or longer depending on your neck size. It is signed on the reverse and has the ridged Jewelcraft tag. It probably dates from the 50s or 60s. I would describe the condition as very good with only minor chipping of enamel paint on a few of the front segments. The back really is in fantastic condition for a necklace of this age with hardly any wear to the segment connectors (rare in a Jewelcraft piece). It really does look stunning on and would make a lovely summer necklace with blue jeans. Anyone with blue eyes would really benefit from being highlighted by this necklace.

  • A beautiful Jewelcraft pearl enamel necklace. This is an unusual necklace signed by Jewelcraft.

There are 5 identical segments at the front that feature 4 black enamel flowers with central champagne coloured faux pearls. The necklace can be worn as a chocker or slightly longer due to the way it fastens - it probably dates from the 50s or 60s. I would describe the condition as very good with no missing stones.

The central segment features a daisy type flower surrounded by smaller buds in glass and pearls with gold leaves. The two surrounding segments of the necklace are attached by jump rings and are made up of a small branch of leaves with a tiny pearl flower and smaller buds in turquoise glass stones and 3 pearls.

  • Oh my! A beautiful set with necklace and clip-on earrings. Both of these items are in fantastic condition. They feature daisy flowers in pastel coloured rhinestones of green, pink, yellow lilac, white and blue with creamy white enamel leaves. The necklace is made up of one central piece connected by a hinge to two smaller sections that narrow towards the gold-tone metal chain. It has a hook fastener and large chain links which allow you to choose a length that suits you or what you are wearing. Looks really nice as a choker. Looks great with blue denim. The earrings match the necklace and feature one single flower and leaves. This set took my breath away when I first saw it. Would be a great set to wear for a bride.
