This is a very stunning 1950s diamante necklace.
It is in amazing condition for its age and has no losses of any stones.
The necklace is certainly a showstopper - and would really be for a more formal event - like a cocktail party or perhaps attending a fancy theatre show or night at the opera. Mind you - if you just love a splash of old-fashioned Hollywood glamour as you might find promoted by stars such as Elizabeth Taylor - this is the piece for you.
The drop section consists of large flower head - the centre is a large blue faceted mock sapphire raised in the middle of the flower. Around are a row of clean oval petals and below another row of blue petals. Above is another slightly smaller but similar flower head.
These flowers fall loosely from the main neck section - this consists of little abstract shapes made of blue and clear diamantes in a most intricate pattern, as photographed.
As a mark of quality, all the metal sections on the back have been gilded with gold-tone finish (you don't find this type of finish on cheaper diamante pieces), and again as photographed.
The clasp is a gold-tone coloured safety ring.
Please note - this does NOT have real sapphires or diamonds - just in case there were any doubts ...
It is not a long piece and would probably sit just on your neck as more of a choker length piece and for a lady with a slim neck - so would look best with a lower cut little black dress or formal cocktail dress in blue satin. The circumference of the necklace is about 15 inches. So before ordering please take your measurements to see that it will fit in your neck without any pinching etc.
I have taken lots of images of this stunning diamante piece - if I have missed anything out please feel free to ask me any more questions.
