The Details...

Constructed from silver tone metal, this necklace features a bar chain, detailed along its length with clusters of round, pale green glass beads and black glass rondelle beads. At its centre, the necklace features a floral design, detailed with Peking Glass flowers and marcasite stones. The necklace fastens with a bolt ring and measures 42cm in length. 

A Short History...

Glass has been a prevelant feature of costume pieces since the invention of fashion jewellery. It's extrememly suitable for meeting the ever challenging and changing demands of costume jewellery designers because it's an easily accessible material that can be formed into any shape and dyed any colour. This necklace was almost certainly created in Czechoslovakia due to the use of Peking Glass, highly decorative metal findings and marcasite stones. All these design aspects are typical of Czech jewellery. 

Wear it With...
