In between the focal beads, there are small glass pearls with a small round gold tone bead separating each set of pearls from each pretty focal bead.

The top of the chain is finished off with a long gold tone bead that looks like a coiled spring, but it isn't - it's another unusual bead, and the clasp is a circular ring clasp.

This necklace is in extremely good condition. In fact it is 'as new'. It's a lovely piece of jewellery and very well made.

Great for the beach, or if you're into rockabilly and Imelda May, or just plain funky colours, then this is a winner.

Fashion for Flappers

The roaring twenties will forever be remembered as the decade of flappers. “Bright Young Things” dressed up for a night on the town at a dance hall or illegal speakeasy. Free of the moral and physical constraint of the previous decades the clothing was loose but glamorous. The flapper girls wore long necklaces, sometimes made of pearls, sometimes like this one, made of beads.

A sautoir flapper necklace with long tassels such as this, might have been worn long, tied like a tie at the start of the tassels, or wrapped around the neck once like a choker, or twice, with the tassels hanging down the front at the sides like a scarf, or even worn with the tassels hanging down the back - very sexy.

There are very many ways in which such a necklace would have, and can be worn. For sure the tassels, when hung to the front, would have been swung around whilst the girl was dancing. A very lively dance, and a very lively necklace.

1950s Extra Long Raspberry Pink Glass Necklace - Flapper Style Vintage Necklace
A really long flapper style necklace from the 1950s. Made with givre glass beads in a pale and raspberry pink. These pretty beads would likely have been called nugget shaped, but I like to describe them as sweetcorn kernel shape. That seems to describe them accurately. They are the same size as sweetcorn kernels too. The beads are interspaced with tiny pale pink glass seed beads and strung on silk thread.

The fastening is a gold tone spring ring clasp.

This necklace is approx. 4 ft ( 100cm) in length, and can be worn in many ways. Plain and long, wrap it to make a two strand shorter necklace, or three strands even. Tie a knot in the bottom, or even wrap it around your wrist many times and make a chunky bracelet/cuff. I have shown a few examples in the photographs.

In the last photo, you will see a pink brooch. It did not come with the necklace but it matches it well. So I thought I'd show them together. There's no obligation to buy the two items as they are separate listings entirely, but just saying. The brooch is listed under the 'Vintage Brooches' category.

All of my jewellery will arrive at your door boxed and beautifully wrapped.

Length: approx. 4ft (100cm)

1940s Rhinestone Necklace w/ Sapphire Blue Centre - Vintage Necklaces - Art Deco
This necklace was made at the end of the Art Deco period in the 1940's. It consists of three panels, two of which are in a kind of knotted pattern, with clear crystal rhinestones set into a silver tone base, and a central panel in the shape of a cut out heart with a central raised sapphire blue crystal rhinestone.

The three panels are linked together and attached to a silver tone chain which is fastened with a circular ring pull clasp.

I noticed, that the clasp is set on the opposite side to normal, so that you need to open the link with your left hand (or get someone else to fasten it for you). Since it's original I think it may have been made for a left handed woman originally. It's not a huge problem. I'm not left handed and I tried the necklace on easily enough, but I thought I'd better mention it. Great if you happen to be left handed though!

This unusual necklace is in very good to excellent condition, with all of the original stones clear and intact. There is slight discolouring to the links between the three panels, and to the clasp, due to it's age. It would be perfect for a bride or bridesmaid, or for the woman who has a special occasion coming up and wants to wear something very different.

Length: approx. 19 inches with a further 1 1/4 inches for the heart drop. The base of the heart sits just below the breastbone but above the bust, when worn.
