1950's Austrian Crystal Triple Strand Necklace & Matching Earrings
1950's and in to the 1960's beautiful crystal beads were popular to wear with just about any outfit. This particular matching set of necklace and clip on earrings is stunning. Both the necklace and earrings are marked "Made in Austria" and whilst crystals were produced elsewhere, Austria was renowned for the quality and radiance of their beads. The aurora borealis coating which Schwarovski created in the 1950's enhances these beads beautifully so that they reflect all the colours of the rainbow. Either end of the three strands is also enhanced with three aurora borealis rhinestones. Measurement across the necklace end to end is 45cms including the 7cm beaded extension chain.
The matching crystal bead earrings measure 2.5cms across, set in to silver tone metal with clip on mechanism. Just beautiful, and gift boxed by Vintageonline.
