*VINTAGE 50S FACETED FAUX CORAL, ETCHED WHITE AND FAUX BRONZE PEARL BEADED NECKLACE FROM GERMANY PLUS SCREWBACK RHINESTONE ROSE EARRINGS
I love all the mixed medium in this vintage '50s 3-strand necklace from Germany. The combination of various beads and faux pearls is so unique and the colors are soft and neutral in Tahitian Coral, Chablis and Marshmallow Creme.
The light coral beads are faceted so there is a slight sparkle when moved from side to side. The Marshmallow Creme beads are a good size and etched which gives them a unique shape. The Chablis faux pearls are about the same size as the white beads and have indentations like Baroque pearls. There are also some very small clear faceted crystal spacers along with what I think are called bead caps in a silver tone plus some small round mottled beads that look similar to lampwork beads.
The necklace has 3 strands - the top strand measures appx. 13", the middle one 15-1/2" and the bottom one which is the longest is 17-5/8". The extender is 3" and a hook for closure. There is a hook for closure and it says "Germany" on it.
I added the cutest pair of vintage screw back earrings to go with this necklace and it matches quite well. There is a little rose on top of a circle of tiny sparkling prong-set rhinestones with another on at the top of the earring. No markings on the earrings but they are very vintage. The diameter of the circle of rhinestones is appx. just a bit over 1/2". It is an excellent match to go with the necklace!

We examine each item carefully and note any imperfections, but unless an item is said to be new, please don't expect it to be perfect & even some new items have small imperfections. I will always state in the description if there are any imperfections & I never do repairs but leave them to others who are better able to do them than me as that is not my expertise.
Please remember that unless specified all items have been used and will show varying signs of use or wear. We always list the obvious imperfections to the best of our abilities. However, some slight imperfections that will not show or affect wearing or using the item may slip by or not be considered worth mentioning. Vintage nightgowns & peignoirs may be delicate so I do not wash them in the machine. I wash them in lukewarm water with Woolite or some other mild soap, then rinse & hang dripping wet in the shower. Since these are vintage items, a bit of extra care needs to be taken with them so they remain beautiful & I definitely would never put a vintage nightgown or a peignoir in the dryer as it would ruin it. The items are sold as we find them. We do not dry clean, launder, alter or repair vintage clothing and they should be cleaned or washed upon arrival. Please make your selection carefully & check the measurements as there is no return on clothing or other items.
