The smiley pendant is also a brooch, and has 2 rhinestone dangly eyes. Rhinestones have turned cloudy, otherwise nothing much wrong with this necklace.

Click here to purchase: https://www.etsy.com/listing/545216069/


Size: 19.25", 10mm beads
In good condition, some wear & aging. Please expect some chips on the crystal beads under magnification but not noticeable when worn. Baguette crystal clasp also has some wear on the back (chips on the gold-plating) and some on the crystal (see photo). This necklace is of course, more splendid in person, with sparkling aurora borealis crystal beads. The beads are faceted perfectly (maybe even more facets than usual) to catch the light. Late 1950s.

The shell chips are generously chunky and interchange between pale pinks and browns. There is patina on the clasps. Entire necklace will end about mid torso length.

VINTAGE GREEN STONE FIGURAL LADY NECKLACE
Click here to purchase: https://carousell.com/p/47478471/

Size: abt 24" length, 50 x 30mm pendant
In fine-good condition, I'm not sure what stone the pendant is made of. It is pale green with varied translucency and bands plus a few fractures, I'm guessing Travertine / Onyx marble. There is a pale goldtone lady figure holding up some flowers glued onto the stone, some wear on the goldtone and aging on the glue (turning yellow). On the back, the bottom left corner is not as 'sharp' as the others, it could be a minor chip.The chain is in good condition with light wear. Probably 1970s.

Click here to purchase: https://www.etsy.com/listing/531508712/

Length: abt 16"
Pendant size: 18 x 13mm
Skinny dainty chain with an enameled butterfly pendant. Looks rather old too. Patina on the back of the pendant, light wear. The wires holding the pendant has patina too, but the gold-plated chain still remains in good condition. Screw barrel clasp. 1970s.
