    This one is very small...is there any way of telling how old it is,friends?
    I am sure the *stones* are glass
    It's 11 inches which seems an odd length for a necklace,maybe there's a bit missing? There is an odd sort of thing happening at the one end.
    There does look to be a glass thing missing but the length wouldn't be affected by that.
    (There is something wrong with one end actually now I've looked...)
    The ring doer-upper is normous too.
    I've not got one that big otherwise I think
    No markings anywhere.
    I love the way it hangs

    I have two similar to this but the other one is glass.
    This one stinks of ole bakey...I did simi it but I did so many at the same time I got confused so can't remember if it was positive or not

    The chain and circly bits looks like silver,the clasp I think is brass, it's about 16 inches xx
    Is it possible to say how old it is? xx
    I can see a bit of greening on the bits now in my pic...I didn't see that IRL

    Hi again, Bou!:happy:
    It looks like ole bakey too.:) It is gorgeous.:happy: Looks Moroccan, ca mid-century. The bakey beads could have been reused from a slightly older necklace. The clasp is a replacement.

    :kiss:
    It probably had a hook clasp, and a previous owner thought this was safer.

    The first necklace is missing at least 1 stone from each end, probably more, given how short it is now. The empty frames for stones have been used as if they are just metal links. That great big spring ring looks out of keeping with the scale of the rest, so maybe grabbed from some other broken bit. An attempt to rescue a striking necklace, but surely too short for any adult woman? Little girl's dress-up piece?

    Funnily enough, I bought one of those old Czech necklaces yesterday. Someone had done the same thing: hook replaced with spring ring. I think that one is missing links.
