Vintage Artisan 14K Yellow Gold Filled and Faceted Chrysoprase Wired Bead Necklace - 35 Inches #d505

Regular price $82.00
This gorgeous necklace is comprised of faceted chrysoprase rondelle beads and 14K yellow gold filled beads and findings. It features a repeating pattern of five chrysoprase beads separated by one textured, round gold bead around the entire strand except at the clasp where there are two chrysoprase beads on each side. The chrysoprase beads are a rich, semi-translucent, sea green color and each bead has been wire-wrapped to the next to form the strand. The necklace is very long and it has a lobster claw clasp, so it could be doubled up at the neckline as two-strand choker. The striking green color of the stones is perfectly complemented by the rich gold of the textured beads. It's such a lovely necklace!

The necklace measures about 35 inches long and the chrysoprase rondelle beads vary in size from approximately 5mm to 6mm. The round gold beads are about 6mm in size each. The necklace is hallmarked "14/20" on one side of the clasp and "GF" on the other side. The green rondelles tested in the chrysoprase range on a Presidium gem tester. The total weight of the necklace is 31.8 grams.

I love the gold and green color of this captivating necklace! It's a great piece to add to a vintage jewelry collection and would also make a very nice gift. The necklace is in excellent vintage condition. Because the beads are hand-wired, there is some variation in the loop sizes between the beads that is mentioned for listing accuracy only. I inspected the beads and did not see any broken or cracked beads, but cannot rule out a flea bite to two in the strand. There's nothing I could see to detract from its beauty or functionality in any way. It's a fabulous find!
