Would Make a GORGEOUS and UNUSUAL GIFT!



A fabulous vintage Art Deco style galalith calla lily flower necklace, which reminds me very much of Miriam Haskell’s pieces.  I can’t say for certain one way or the other if it is one of hers, as I have been unable to find anything similar at all during my research.   It is a waterfall style necklace, dripping with glossy black calla lilies, with contrasting gold detail.  It has a fantastic Egyptian Revival look and really is very unusual.

 

This necklace is a bit of a mystery – it was sold to me as bakelite, but I don’t think it is.  I tested it with simichrome and a couple of times the simichrome turned bright pink instead of yellow. It could date anywhere from the 1940’s – 1980’s.  It definitely has age to it.  Whoever it was made by, it really is a very unusual statement piece, which looks very eye-catching when worn.  It fastens with a chunky screw barrel clasp.

 

The calla lily has since Victorian times been associated with loss and mourning, and is a popular funeral flower.  It is a symbol of beauty, elegance, devotion, royalty, love and peace.

 

Necklace measures approximately: 17.75″ or 45cm

 

The central drop measures approximately: 3.5″

 

Perfect For Anybody who likes their Jewellery to be Stand-Out and Unique!
