Impressive and quite generous in weight while at the same time not easy to find, the Carmen Beckmann necklace presented here is wrought in sterling and has flat-cut oval amethyst stones adorning its stylized foliate links. Based on design and construction, I tend to believe that this is an early example of Beckmann's work and it is exquisite. The necklace has a wearable length of 16 1/2" (once clasped, it becomes a little roomier at 16 3/4") and its width is 1" (at its widest). It weighs a good 71.4 grams and is fully and appropriately
excellent vintage condition with very good patina - you could always buff it up a little as I have hardly touched it -, lusciously colored stones with nice inclusions and no damage noted.
