This chic necklace was made by the renowned jewelry house of Van Cleef and Arpels. It is 20 1/4" long and consists of 6 strands of 4MM tubular coral beads interspersed with tubular gold beads. It has a 1" long tubular closure that is hallmarked "VCA 4M 970.4" on one side and "14k" on the other. I suspect that this was made in collaboration with the Spanish firm, Puig Doria who made designs for Van Cleef in the 1970s. It is in excellent condition.

This vintage Austrian necklace is by far one of the best pieces of costume I've owned. It is 17" long from end to end and is approximately 4" wide in front. It stands high on the neck when worn and is a little difficult to photo on a standard jewelry mount. It is made from brass with a Russian gilt finish, and the front is elaborately set with topaz rhinestones in oval, pear, and marquis shapes. It is in excellent condition and is signed "made in Austria" on an applied round tag.
