This necklace is vintage 1950's, and is a wonderful and unusual piece. The elaborate rhinestone and crystal pendant is also a brooch in complete working order. The large rhinestones are gold-foiled and exceptionally clear. All of the rhinestones are bright with the exception of one small baugette, which is not quite as clear, but it is not noticeable and does not detract from the beauty of the piece. The gold tone of the pendant shows some sign of wear upon close inspection. This wear is to be expected with vintage pieces and adds to their character. The clasp works very well. I have attached a 24-inch goldtone vintage chain This necklace is a real beauty.
