Deltah Vintage Cultured Pearl Necklace Blue Crystal Clasp 1960s Jewelry
This triple strand fine quality vintage cultured pearl necklace was designer made by Deltah and is still in the original Deltah signed box with certificate of authenticity.
The 8 mm pearls have superb luster as they are Japanese Akoya cultured pearls from the early 1960s. Look closely at the close up photos and you can see the pearls are not all exactly the same size or shape.
The elegant clasp is a large ocean blue rectangular faceted crystal, flanked with clear crystal baguettes, 5 on each side. You can view and read the Deltah certificate in the photos above.
This necklace was made for young ladies as the neck size is smaller than unusual. When clasped, the necklace is 13 3/4" or 35 cm long. The ornate clasp is 1 1/8" or 30 mm long.
I sincerely doubt this necklace has ever been worn as the entire necklace is in pristine clean like new condition with no imperfections or flaws. All of the pearls are very lustrous with no scratches or wear. The clasp is in perfect working order and the blue crystal does not have any chips, cracks, or facet wear.
The original Deltah box is cornflower blue crushed velvet with a diamond flower motif. The inside is suede and silk lined. There is some light foxing in spots on the inside and the outside has some light signs of fabric wear. The necklace itself is not signed.
