Here we have a lovely collection of 6 vintage faux pearl and beaded necklaces from the 1950's. Handed down from our family, in wonderful colors and condition (the woman in our family as the men were very careful when it came to packing and taking care of their items). Back then the jewelry (whether faux pearls/stones or beads) were made to look and feel like the real thing, great pride and craftsmanship was the rule back then. Making costume jewelry again to look and feel like the real thing, many people prefer them to the real item, again because of the craftsmanship and are still sort after today for their beauty. All six are mark/stamped on their clasps either *Germany or *Japan. Each one measures (as worn around one's neck)....
1: Two tone gray faux pearl choker necklace.....8in.
2: Two tone three strand faux pearl choker necklace with butterfly accents next to clasp...8 1/2in.
3: Faux pearl choker necklace (large faux pearls, has some weight).....6 in. 4: Long light blue beaded necklace with medium beaded accented clasp...17 1/2 in.
5: White beaded necklace with gold trimmed beaded accents....14in.
6: Large light pink beaded necklace with medium beaded accented clasp...17 1/2 in.
Lovely pieces to add to one's own collection or even as special gifts.
