Crystals

Crystal is currently a hot item nationally and vintage crystal is still a bargain compared to buying new crystal (assuming you could find the same cuts and colors) before you even consider the time and/or cost involved in stringing.  Before I got interested in vintage jewelry I had NO idea that crystal was available is such a wide range of colors and cuts.  Enjoy!

Description: Czech?Transparent Raspberry Glass Bead Strand - 18", graduating beads from approximately 5mm to 15mm, strung on foxtail chain, old spring ring brass clasp. These do not look like other Czech cut beads that I have had because the bead channel is white, like a lampwound bead, and the color almost looks like the color was applied to the outside of a clear bead, though none of the color came off in the cleaning process, so that seems doubtful. The girdle of many of the beads is clear; there is some variation in the color but all seems to be original, the beads all seem to be there, no chips or problems that I can see. The color is very pretty, nice weight.

Item: CN3-151

Description: Uranium Glass? Bead Necklace- Beautifully faceted and unusual cut of bead, very slightly lighter than the ones that I have had in the past, but I am pretty sure these are still considered uranium glass. The fancy beads graduate from 12mm to about 5.5mm, separated by small bicones, with back portions using bicones alternating with seed beads. Usual old style spring ring clasp, 15 3/4". I have restrung on beadalon for your security. These do not come along very frequently, and yellow is a popular color that is difficult to find in jewelry.

Item: CN3-110

Price: $32.50 US

Description: Clear Crystal Necklace - I am guessing this is an older piece, possibly 1920's or 1930's, graduated rounds from 7mm to 16mm, with an unusual square faceting, and  clear bicone spacers. About 16" long, spring ring clasp. I have restrung on Beadalon.    Some major design houses are showing clear crystal necklaces for big $$$.  This nicer quality piece is yours for $25.00

Item: CN3-019

Price: $25.00 US

Description: Pink Aurora Borealis Crystal Cha-Cha Expansion Bracelet - Really pretty and fun piece. Silvertone findings, metal finish is in excellent condition. 2" in diameter unstretched, probably better for a smaller wrist. Approx. 1 1/8" wide. One or two beads missing, not noticeable when worn, otherwise excellent condition and nice weight. For this price, if your time was worth anything at all, you could not buy the components and make the piece yourself. (approximately 125 beads)

Description: Square-faceted Fancy Cut Round Clear Crystal Necklace - Heavy, expensive crystal beads with many more facets than conventional cuts, this necklace uses graduated sizes from 6mm to 13mm, separated by small glass rondelles.  15 3/4" long, spring ring clasp; I have restrung this on silk with french wire ends for your security.  At $37.50, this is less than the component parts at wholesale.
