    Any clasp? Looks 70s Victorian Revival.

    Agree. Was typing at the same time thinking 1960s, maybe 70s.

    Was thinking that last picture maybe was the clasp, Kard, how does it open?

    Can't help with the maker (might be tricky as no huge markers for extreme quality which might point to a maker). That said, it is a bit nicer than average. Reminds me of Goldette era pieces, important if you sell you have to show/mention that finish loss on the glass stone backing. The bottom dangle looks a bit odd to me (any chance part of that dangle is snapped off or missing something?) That dangle looks kind of unfinished, but maybe I'm overthinking it.

    Should find a buyer, it's nice.

    Goldette didn't use foil-backed stones that I've ever seen, at least not open-backed like that. The clasp is a funky 70s barrel - one of the pain in the fingers ones.I'd lay odds it's American but beyond that, I have no idea.

    "Goldette era" not "Goldette". That sort of heavier goldtone they used was popular in the 70s. Agree Goldette did not do foil backed stones. Also that barrel clasp does not unscrew, seems like there is a piece that sort of slides into it. Agree it's an unusual clasp.

    Seeing a close up of the bottom dangle, looks complete.

    Definitely vintage, take good pics. Should sell.

    It's a barrel clasp with a tongue,much like box clasp.

    Jivvy the research is my favorite

    I think "artisan made"... looks like a combo of handwork (eg, the long oval links) and prefab pieces (the dangly bits).

    I think it will find a home as is, but the jump rings really are a mess and I'd be tempted to sort them before selling.
