Retro French 18kt Yellow Gold Large Bead Necklace 36"
A unique and stunning beaded necklace from the Retro (ca1940s) era! Crafted in vibrant 18kt yellow gold, this French made piece is comprised of polished gold beads that rest between short sections of chain. The matching beads are hollow and relatively large in size, creating an eye-catching and timeless statement when worn. The necklace fastens together with a push clasp and safety latch seamlessly hidden within a bead, and stamped along the tongue are several hallmarks, including the French "weevil," and a "750" gold purity mark, beside a maker's mark. Thanks to its generous length, the piece can easily slip on and off overhead, and can be worn long or doubled for a fabulous layered look. Despite the substantial look of the piece, the beads are lightweight, making it perfect for everyday wear. Whether worn alone, or paired with other necklaces, this versatile piece blends wonderfully into modern day fashion and would make a stylish addition to any collection!
Measurements: The necklace measures approximately 36" long. Each bead measures about 10mm in diameter. The overall pennyweight of the piece is 43.5dwt (67.6 grams).
Condition: The overall condition of the necklace is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the yellow gold setting. All of the beads are intact and the push clasp and safety latch are secure and in good working order.
