Perfect for Mother's Day! A charming "1928" Gold Plated and signed floral 2-picture locket (which opens left to right) hangs from its original 16" chain with a screw-in Barrel Clasp and dainty tooled floral connector. To this I have added a drop of 3 rare Swarovski 1940s Crystal Comet Or Crystals, separated by 14Kt Gold Filled "Stardust" rounds.

The vintage Swarovski Crystals are from the 1940s and is rare indeed! These are known as Crystal Comet OR (having a 24Kt Gold finish on half the bead while the other half is clear crystal). The effect is a bead of subtle golden topaz luster. These were discontinued in the 1940s - some say it was found that the process used to create the Gold Comet OR crystals was toxic to humans and that because of the risk incurred in creating them, production was discontinued forever. However, some others say the process was simply too costly. No matter what the reason, it was a loss to the jewelry world, as they were incomparably beautiful Crystals! And now very scarce...

From the barrel clasp to the bottom of the locket measures a total drop of 13 1/4". The locket itself measures a dainty 5/8" across x 3/4" long. There is room inside for 2 pictures

The 1928 Jewelry Company was founded in 1968 by Melvyn Bernie in Burbank, California creating finely detailed fashion jewelry, replicas of vintage jewelry drawn from a wealth of antique designs. This is a perfect vintage example of one of their Victorian reproductions.

There is a slight loss of plating on the left hand rim of the raised floral design, but hardly noticeable. All in all, this is a dainty and charming necklace and would make a perfect keepsake gift.
