This artisan classic Vintage 1950's Copper Gold Mauve Bead Necklace is truly exquisite and exceptional. Many bead necklaces from that Mad Men era are pretty tame, but this one has all the qualities of a wild but well designed piece of costume jewelry.

The 2 strand necklace is composed of a variety of bead shapes with sculptural overtones. There are molded 2 tone plastic beads in mauve to white with gold and copper accents, capped with gold filigree findings, that graduate in size from the large 1" oval center beads to smaller sizes. These alternate with swirled rose-copper beads, gold ribbed metal beads, aurora borealis diamond shaped bronze crystal beads, gold filigree beads, here and there interspersed with clear rhinestone roundels and faceted gold seed beads. The scalloped slide in clasp is set with a gorgeous art stone cabochon.

If you want to take a walk on the wilder side of the 50's this necklace will definitely enhance the aura of any number of rockabilly dresses and Mad Men suits or wiggle dresses! It is also an unusual but unsigned necklace for the collector who appreciates the beauty of the slightly eccentric mid century costume jewelry! (1130)

size 19" x 3/8">>7/8" bead size
condition excellent ( if you look through a magnifier,a tiny bit of wear on a few of the aurora borealis crystals)
