Not all vintage wood bead necklaces were created equal! Some, like this unique design, are exceptional quality with very unique carved wood beads and accent beads. The wood is Cherry, stained dark brown. The round bead at the center is about the size of a golf ball or 1 1/4" wide. It is flanked by two beads that are slightly smaller and are oblique with six scalloped sides. At the top are two tear drop rounds.
Look closely at the bell caps on the 3 largest beads. They are sterling silver flowerettes ; very old designs that are not found today. Another quality feature about this necklace : the gold lobster clasp and jump ring are signed 18kt GF. The 10mm cinnamon round plastic beads are spaced by polished gold metal beads. The brown and white marbled beads are plastic as well.
The necklace is 25" long. the tear drop wood beads are 1 5/8" long. The entire necklace is in pristine like new clean condition. All of the beads re perfect with no scratches, scuffs or chips. The wood has a natural finish and is not faded or dry. The necklace is not heavy or bulky to wear.
