A fabulous vintage genuine Baltic amber bead necklace in a nice long length that hails from the Art Deco era.
At a sassy 40-1/2" long this luxury necklace is rope length and continuous (it doesn't have a clasp and simply pops over the head). There are 51 olive shaped faceted amber beads graduating from a huge 30x20mm mid strand bead to 12x8mm for the smaller beads.
The amber is natural, it is not reconstituted or a synthetic substitute like Bakelite. It is a beautiful rich cognac/honey colour and warm to the touch with organic inclusions within the beads.
The beads are strung onto very thick golden yellow silk cord which is hand knotted between each bead and the necklace drapes perfectly. A fabulous amber necklace, iconic of the era!
It goes without saying that antique and vintage amber necklaces should only be worn by adults, they pose a choking and safety risk to babies and young children.
