Carved Ivory Bone Necklace 1970s Jewelry
From the 1970's, this attractive carved bone necklace has smooth disk shaped beads in ivory white. There are silver plated round spacer beads between each bone bead, and the necklace is accented with two very large silver plate beads that are elongated and ribbed. There is a large silver plate hook and the necklace measures 20" long. The large silver ribbed beads are 1 3/4" long x 3/4" wide.
The necklace is in excellent condition and is exceptionally clean. Some of the small silver spacer beads have a light patina from age, but they can be polished. All of the silver plate beads are real sterling silver plated metal, not silver tone metal. This particular necklace is an exceptional vintage design.
I should mention that necklaces like this are very collectible as they are not being imported anymore. Large carved bone items have been restricted from importation here in the US, making these vintage necklaces highly sought after.
Comes gift wrapped and shipped in a new presentation jewelry box.
