Vintage 1940's - 50's Joseff Pearl Rhinestone Flower Cluster Choker Necklace For Sale
This sale is for a detailed and charming, rhinestone and pearl choker necklace, that is from the 1940's - 50's.
This piece is not signed but is consistent in design and construction with pieces made by Joseff. The necklace is brass measuring 13 1/2" long so it is a true choker and wraps directly around the width of your neck. The necklace closes securely with a broad hidden push clasp. The necklace has five strands of pearls that drape softly around your neck. Each pearl measures just under 5mm in diameter, has tiny brass end caps, and a tinier gold spacer bead so the strands have lots of golden color and delicate texture. The pearls are very creamy and bright without any surface wear or chipping to their finish. The pendant at the front of the necklace has a detailed cluster of rhinestones, flower and leaves, with a large rhinestone loop at one side. The rhinestones on the loop are tiny, 2mm in diameter, and they are all intact and look original to the piece. They are attached by wiring onto the loop so there are a few that sit slightly askew and crooked but it is noticeable only upon very close inspection. There is one small cluster of pearls on one side of the clasp and only one pearl on the opposite side of the clasp - I think these originally probably looked the same so there are five tiny pearls missing. The remaining pearls do show some wear and flaking to the finish as well. There are no other rhinestones missing and they are all bright and sparkly. There is a tiny bit of verdigris around the pearls but this is the only spot and it is noticeable only pun close inspection. The brass is bright and golden with almost no darkening. Overall this is a detailed and charming, rhinestone and pearl choker necklace, that is from the 1940's - 50's that is in very good condition.
