Very beautiful vintage 1930s or 1940s Art Deco long necklace with graduated genuine amethyst faceted beads hand knotted on matching pale lavender thread, with a gold washed sterling silver filigree clasp. Clasp is marked STERLING. The beads have gorgeous slightly variegated color. The color is slightly warmer than the photos show. It weighs 55 grams. Nice size -- 39 inches wearable length and the beads range in size from 6mm to 9mm. Excellent condition. Several beads have age related slight wear along the facetes and two beads have slightly larger losses; pictured but not noticeable when worn. Display form is life size. Photos enlarged to show detail.
