Estate Gold-Filled + Rutilated Quartz Crystal Bead Necklace 19.5"
A beautiful and unique Estate beaded necklace! This lovely piece features a row of slightly graduated rutilated quartz crystal beads, which are hand-strung on white thread. Each bead varies slightly in size and shape, and the quartz is clear with natural needle-like inclusions of black, gold, or rosy colored rutile that almost appear to "float," as though suspended inside. The variations of rutile within the quartz is fantastic, providing a wonderful shimmering effect as light passes through the beads. Resting in between each is a smoothly polished yellow gold-filled bead, adding a vibrant eye-catching accent. The necklace fastens in the back with a push clasp, flanked on either side by additional gold beads. This simple and attractive design is perfect for any rutilated quartz lover, and would make a lovely everyday necklace!
Measurements: The necklace measures approximately 19.5" long. The largest bead at the center measures about 3/4" long and 1/2" wide, and smallest bead measures about 1/2" long and 3/8" wide.
Condition: The overall condition of the necklace is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the yellow gold-filled beads or to the rutilated quartz beads, all of which are securely strung. The push clasp is secure and in good working condition.
