Vintage Estate Graduated Faux Pearl Necklace, Sterling Marcasite Art Deco Clasp, 16", 1940's

$ 38.00

Vintage Art Deco Sterling Marcasite Clasp, Faux Pearl Estate Necklace.  This has graduated faux pearls in 6mm to 12mm - the pearls are a heavy perhaps glass type rather than the lighter plastic.  The clasp is a rectangular tiered art deco sterling clasp with a filigree finish and marcasite accents.  The necklace is 16" long.  It is in very good condition for it's age which is believed to be the late 1930's into the 1940's.  The clasp just sells this piece.  Great for weddings and proms and anywhere calling for pearls.  I'd classify this piece as very good condition given the age and condition of the pearls.  Only minimal wear but could stand a light cleaning.  This came from a PA estate where the pieces ranged from the very early 1900's to the 1970's - some very nice quality high end pieces to very nice costume pieces.  See photos.  Lot. Loc. Win.1.2816.5 (LD 2/3/17).

Photos are magnified so things will appear larger than they are and they are likely in better condition than the photos depict due to the magnification.

 Thank you for stopping by.

Please note that most of my photos are taken at 10X magnification. This shows any blemishes much more magnified than they really are.

I keep great notes about each item and can answer most questions quickly, but I do not store fine jewelry on premises, so answers about specific measurements may take some time as I arrange to inspect the piece again.
