    I've had this necklace for many years, most of that time sitting in a drawer with lots of other bits of jewellery I loved. It is made of a soft metal, is very intricate in design but has no marking. Only recently has some recent research on the internet indicate that it may have been made in Czechoslovakia from metal and rhinestones.
    It is made up of a consistent flow of clear rhinestones but has also eleven "open bells" dropping at he front, each of these have in their centre a larger teardrop shaped clear rhinestone and filigreed at the back.
    Your thoughts would be appreciated as I'm only guessing here, I hope you like it. :)

      Lulux, your necklace is beautiful! Pics taking is a great enjoyment, yours are beautiful :-)
      Can't help at all with id though, I have no knowledge in costume jewelry makers :-/

      Well I love it!! Very pretty! I think the filigrees were flat and then folded up to shape the bell. Could very well be Czech made sometime 1930's-60's. It's brass or bronzy metal right?
    17. LuluX LuluX, 5 years ago
      Thank you Nicefice for your appreciation and luv. :)
    18. LuluX LuluX, 5 years ago
      valentino97 thank you for your appreciation and luv. I believe you may be right in the shaping of the bell, must have been very time consuming:) Is it brass or bronzy metal ... I'm not sure what it is, but very silvery in colour. Tin?
    19. valentino97 valentino97, 5 years ago
      If it's silver then base-metal nickel? Pretty great and I hope you wear it in best of health.
    20. LuluX LuluX, 5 years ago
      valentino97 I had no idea about nickel and its effects of allergic reactions, so just did some reading on it. Apparently nickel has a "yellow tinge" which this hasn't, it is very cool hue with black areas, so hopefully not! :) Thanks for your comments .. food for thought.!
