Feminine, glamorous, old hollywood...
New design with all vintage material.

About the necklace:
I made this piece using lovely seafoam green faux pearls from a 1950 vintage necklace signed "Japan" (original hook used) and mixed them with some wonderful vintage cream faux pearls that I found in an antique shop.
What makes this necklace so stunning is the beautiful vintage jade green glass brooch attached to it.
The shortest strand measures 18 inches, 2.5 inch extension.
Handmade by me, one of a kind unrepeated design/piece

About the brooch:
The brooch is signed Sphinx and is also marked with a design number A517. It was created in gold tone metal and features a large mottled jade green art glass centre stone. This is surrounded by a ring of tiny faux pearls. The design is tiered with the middle layer overlapping the bottom, giving it a wonderful 3 dimensional quality. The bottom layer is open work design and is also accented with oval shaped jade green glass accents that match the top stone. Very ornate! This brooch measures 1 1/2 inches wide and is fairly thick.
Good condition vintage.

This necklaces comes with free matching earrings
