Luxe 1980s Unsigned Ciner Gripoix Glass Strass Sautoir

Sumptuous 1980s long beaded necklace with poured glass beads in slightly irregular shapes simulating carved jade or chalcedony, carnelian, sapphire, and onyx, rondelles with smoke gray rhinestones in gunmetal settings, large goldtone beads with a Florentined finish, and small heavy cast goldtone rondelles. The large goldtone beads are handknotted with heavy matching gold yarn. Not marked but I have seen this exact necklace in another colorway, with a Ciner paper label. Large, weighty at 167 grams, and substantial and more than capable of making a statement on its own, but also great as a layering piece. Ciner specialized in producing costume jewelry which exactly simulated fine jewelry. Continuous strand with no clasp but can be worn doubled with a matching necklace shortener which I will provide. 35 inches long. Just over 3/8 inch wide at largest beads. Excellent condition. Display form is life size. Photos enlarged to show detail.
