Vintage Retro Amethyst Glass Drops Gold Filled Necklace
This gorgeous vintage necklace has five drops, each composed of a round bezel-set faux amethyst link and a fluted drop shape gold-filled bead finished by a round gold-filled bead. The center is made of custom links, and a Rolo chain completes the necklace. It measures 16″ long. Each drop is 1 1/8″ long.
Very well made, finished with an older spring ring clasp with a beveled edge instead of the customary tab. Based on this, we date it to the late 1930s, right at the end of the Art Deco Era and the beginning of the Retro Era.
The necklace is in excellent condition. It weighs approximately 9.5 grams. It is marked “Sturdy, 1/20 12k” on the ring opposite the clasp. It drapes beautifully and looks so rich!
