Picked up at an estate sale in a bulk bag. Can't find anything like this no matter how many types of searches I do. Can anybody tell me who the manufacturer and possibly date this design?
I have no yet cleaned this goldtone necklace, and it's got some dirt on it so if that shows in the pics, ignore - it's in beautiful shape with little wear. Each geometric "link" is joined by three separate rings, each with two pearl beads to form a cluster. There is some minor wear on the rings present, but they don't show up because the beads pretty much cover them.
No marks. Two different types of clasps - spring for necklace and then a type of lobster clasp I've not seen before for the bracelet.

    I think it's from about 1980s.

    No. Definitely not 1980's - the necklace has a spring clasp which looks like it might be a replacemet, but the bracelet has another type of clasp not used in the 1980's that is original to the set, I'm pretty sure.
    But I am not an expert at all. Since posting I did send a picture to someone who sells only vintage chain to see if he could recognize the goldtone links, but he could not and could only confirm this was handmade because of the way the seed pearls were put on the three links, then attached to the gold links. "Alot of work" he said, so likely not 1980's when everything was mass manufactured. Thank you, though for looking and giving your opinion. Appreciate that!
