Fabulous vintage beaded necklace in turquoise and jewel tone beads, circa 1965. Marked CADORO on an attached metal hang tag at the spring ring clasp. With seamless Lucite beads in two shades of turquoise, goldtone metal spacers and findings, and amazing huge poured glass beads in glowing jewel tones, including red, green, peach, cobalt, and amber. The glass beads are probably by the French maker Gripoix. The colors are more intense than the photos depict. A stunning statement necklace. Big elaborate necklaces are a very significant current fashion trend.
Great size -- 2 1/2 inches at widest point by 16 1/2 inches long by 1/2 inch deep. Excellent condition. Photos enlarged to show detail.
