This necklace is a delicate but bold piece. Necklace is in the lariat style dating to the 1930’s that looks to be Eastern European (Czech, Bohemian, West Germany). Length of the necklace is 16-inches long with a 2 3/8-inch drop. Drop consists of two large beads with decorative cap and a shell-shaped design element. Chain is a crinkle-cut link accented with several beads. The bead sizes measure from 14.25 mm to 6.0 mm; color is a slightly orangish-pink. Metal is a silver-tone base metal with a gold-tone clasp which looks to be original. Condition is very good: silver plating has worn in many spots which is typical from age and wear.
All of my vintage items are all previously worn and loved and so are sold as is. I have a long history in the jewelry industry (since 1993!) and am a certified GIA gemologist. I do my best to accurately describe items and am confident in my ability to assess stones, metal, construction, etc. I use the term “delicate” in many of my listings which I interpret to mean small or dainty. If the ring or item requires extra care when worn, usually I use “fragile” or “wear with care”. Most pieces have been lightly polished or cleaned, if possible, unless the process will damage or alter their natural patina. Some items can be altered, some cannot, so please feel free to ask questions, I will answer them as quickly as I can. Please keep in mind that custom-altered pieces are non-returnable.
Return policy: I want you to be satisfied with your purchase. I will accept returns and refund the full amount paid less the cost of shipping and insurance. I ask that all items are returned to me in the same condition in which they were received and within two (2) weeks of receipt.
