Antique Nouveau Czech Saphiret Glass Brass Necklace:
THIS IS ONE AMAZING CZECH SAPHIRET GLASS STONE AND BEAD DANGLE NECKLACE! JUST IN CASE YOU DON'T ALREADY KNOW SAPHIRETglass was made in Gablonz, Czechoslovakia in the mid-19th century by mixing melted gold into sapphire-colored glass. The result was a glass which looked brick red or brown, but reflects an awesome Blue MAUVE color. Saphiret quit being made around the turn of the century as theprice of goldbecame too high. It is quite rare to find and have become very collectible. THE PENDANT HAS A LOVELY ARTS AND CRAFTS OR ART NOUVEAU STYLE TO IT AND THE PENDANT IS BRASS. THERE ARE 3 SPARKLING WHITE RHINESTONES ALONG WITH THE SAPHIRET STONE IN THIS NECKLACE IS PARTICULARLY LOVELY. THIS STONE IS 8MM X 12 MM IN SIZE, IT REFLECTS A LOVLEY BLUE BROWN, IT IS VERY VIBRANT AS YOU CAN SEE FROM THE PICTURES. THERE IS ALSO A SMALL SAPHIRET BEAD 5MM DANGLE. THE NECKLACE IS 18 INCHES IN LENGTH. I BELIEVE THE CHAIN IS GOLD FILLED AND IT IS IN FINE CONDITION!
