Unusual crystal glass bead vintage necklace

 An unusual vintage necklace of crystal clear glass beads

I have never seen this type of crystal bead necklace ever. So of course I had to buy it from the car boot sale. The glass beads are faceted to give that twinkling effect when the light reflects of them. However instead of having colour added to the glass or a coating over the glass beads to add some different colours. The thread is in a multi coloured style. So when it passes through the bead the colour is magnified.

So although the beads are all clear. There are flashes of red, blue, green, pink and yellow thread colour. Completed in a graduated style with a silver metal bolt ring. Unfortunately the clasp isn't signed. An important tip is to look at these ring fastenings under a loop. Many are signed with the country of origin or maker. Sometimes they are stamped with the silver mark.

Not for sale and now part of my growing collection.
