    This set came from a great aunt. She was born and lived in Philadelphia. The beads feel like glass, but could they be real turquoise? There are no marks on the necklace or earrings that I can see. Thanks.

    I'm seeing glass. Turquoise can be polished & smooth but doesn't really achieve a glassy finish, in my experience.

    Thanks Bronwen. I thought so, but I wanted to make sure. It's a very pretty set.

    I bet that's 1950s.

    Given the brushed gold, I'd put it a bit later. Early 1960s.

    Thanks Owned. What about it says 1950s to you?

    These are (replica) 1950s. Similar in design but flatter.

    Nicely made with knots between the beads. This should sell well today since it's very contemporary.
