Very Good - There is darkening to the tips of a few of the mirrored panels. However, this is only visible upon very close inspection.

The Details...

This necklace is constructed from gilt base metal and is detailed with bezel set, purple mirror glass leaves along the full length of a flat, curb link chain. It fastens with a bolt ring and measures 39cm.

A Short History...

Glass has been a prevelant feature of costume pieces since the invention of jewellery. An easily accessible material that can be formed into any shape and dyed any colour. Glass was heavily used in 1920s and 1930s pieces, such as this necklace, because it could be dyed in a vast array of colours to meet the need for affordable jewellery after the Great War and the Depression. This necklace is made from highly sought after mirror glass, which was commonly produced in Czechoslovakia during the Art Deco era and molded in different shapes with a silvered backing.  

Wear it With...

This necklace is perfect for evening wear -  it would look beautiful with a little black dress. It would add a pop of colour to casual looks too - pair with a blue silk shirt.
