Condition Report:

Good - Some wear to the plating of the necklace. However, this is consistent with age and use and does not detract from the appeal of the piece.

The Details...

This necklace features brilliant cut, multi-faceted, colourless crystals of varying sizes along its length. The crystals are bezel set and they are set in and linked together with silver plated brass. The necklace fastens with a bolt ring and measures 38cm in length. 

A Short History...

Glass and crystal have been a prevelant feature of costume pieces since the invention of jewellery. Easily accessible materials that can be formed into any shape. They were heavily used in 1920s and 1930s pieces, such as this necklace, because they could meet the need for affordable jewellery after the World War One and the Great Depression. They could also be pressed into the evocative geometric shapes we associate with Art Deco design.
