VINTAGE 3-PC AVOCADO GREEN & YELLOW PEARLSCENT NECKLACES(repaired)
Price: S$40.00 (US$33.33)


Yellow: about 18.25", 14 - 21mm beads
Green: about 17" each, 13mm beads
Repaired and altered necklaces, these are very old faux pearl beads, they are quite chunky and appear to be made of wood and then with a layer of pearlscent on the outside. Nice old colours, satiny, in avocado green and yellow. The yellow one has graduated beads, they have normal aging but in very good condition. The 2 green ones have some crackling starting to occur on the paintwork but still very pretty when worn (see last photo). They are strung on new cords, with the original old-fashioned plastic transparent ring (original hook clasps were all broken) and contemporary goldtone lobster clasp (lobster clasps are salvaged). The end pearl is vintage but not original to the necklace, I used it as a stopper. The main beads are from around 1920s-30s. You will receive all 3!

RETRO LATTICE FLOWER FAUX PEARL NECKLACE (repaired)
Price: S$18.00 (US$15.00)


Size: 16.5" length, 55mm pendant
Fine-good condition, the front is alright with a scratch on the faux pearl, the back though has wear on the gold-plating revealing a greyish base. Normal minor aging. The clasp has also darkened. The faux pearls are made of plastic. This necklace is restrung on new cords, with new clam shell knot covers towards the back. This necklace has a matching bracelet which is not shown, it is not in good condition with lots of wear but I will include it anyway.

VINTAGE GRADUATING AB-CRYSTALS 18.5" NECKLACE (repaired)
Price: S$22.00 (US$18.33) nett


Size: slightly under 18.5" length, 5 - 15mm beads
Fine condition but still very wearable, main problem are the dings & nicks here and there from bumping around (which is why they are going for less); and scratches on the ab-coats of the crystals, they are faceted (please see photos). They still make a sparkling statement though, I have rebeaded them on new cords with 2 new Swarovski bicones at the ends for easy clasping. Necklace weighs heavy as these are quality beads, also possibly Swarovski. Closes with a screw-barrel clasp.
