Condition Report:

Very Good - Some rubbing to the gilt metal in a couple of places. This is only visible upon very close inspection and does not detract from the overall appeal of the pieces.

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 1940s pieces, such as this necklace, because of it's ability to meet the need for affordable jewellery during and after the Second World War. 

Wear it with...

Pair the vibrant colours in this set with grey or black to allow them to really stand out. Alternatively wear with rich blue velvet for a Winter look.
