Vintage Faux Pearl Rhinestone Choker Necklace, 17", 1940's-1950's, Weddings/Proms/Special occasions
Vintage Faux Pearl Rhinestone Choker Necklace. Appx. age is 1940's-1950's, possible older. This is a glamorous necklace that has 3mm faux pearls set on the diagonal with three either pale blue or smoky rhinestones set in a gold tone setting in each row. Hook clasp - total length is 17" long and 1/2" wide. The back of the necklace sort of has a herringbone weave - very well made in good to very good condition for it's age. The rhinestones have an Old European cut with the table being shorter than what the standard is now. I do believe the stones are a pale blue but it is a little difficult to tell because they seem to change by the amount of light. Whether they are a smoky color or blue - they are equal and match The stones sitting higher than the pearls and sometimes. I see that in some of the photos the stones were turned on their side - all it takes to put them upright is to lightly bend the necklace and push the stone with your fingernail and it will spin right into place. This is beautiful for a wedding, prom, or special occasions. Good to very good good condition. See photos but they do not nearly capture the beauty and uniqueness of this piece. (Lot Loc.

We carry mostly vintage jewelry across all themes in my stores and listings. We have our own store and are and have been known as stampshopgirl in Ebay and have been since I think 2003. At one point we had a gift shop/rubber stamping store and switched over to vintage jewelry about six years ago on a full time basis, which also including taking and completing gemology classes as well as jewelry appraisal studies. We carry limited other vintage items and am trying to change our presence to marias vintage and estate treasures. You may see both names until the migration is complete. You can find us on pinterest where all ebay items and other venues are categorized - mariasvinta0654.
If the item is over $50.00 for international mailing will need be sent with insurance at the buyer’s cost. That may require separate invoicing.

Thank you for stopping by, mariasvintage.
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.
In addition to this website, Maria's Vintage, I am on eBay as stampshopgirl, on Etsy as stampshopgirl, and on StorEnvy as Maria's. I have many vintage jewelry items and other vintage and new items - a very wide variety.
I will combine shipping, even if you buy items from one of my other stores. If you purchase one item and know you’ll be picking more, just email me and let me know and I will ship them at the same time and refund the shipping over the combined limit.
Given the number of different items I carry it is hard to know what combination of items can be purchased to pre-plan the shipping, so just email me and we will work it out to save you shipping charges whenever possible.
