An outstanding example of the best vintage costume jewelry, this stunning statement necklace is featured on the cover of the book "Juliana Jewelry of D&E, The Last Generation", by Paula Knutson & Karla Wacker.
Made in the 60s to the 70s, styled as a collar worthy of an Egyptian monarch. Bright, thick gold plating is contrasted by large and small oval Lucite cabochons imitating Turquoise, Coral, Green Onyx and Lapis Lazuli. The segments are connected by links set with small round faux turquoise cabochons. The necklace is completed by a substantial chain and finished with a hook clasp.
This beauty has a maximum wearable length of 16 1/4" long. It is 1 3/4" tall at the center. Each segment averages 2" long.
Unsigned and undeniably authentic Juliana/D&E, it is in superb condition with bright plating, no loss, no damage. It looks barely worn. This is the book cover:
