I saw this necklace and was intrigued by it. I looked at it for some time and then put it back. The next day, I found it where I left it, so I decided to take my chances with it.
I don’t think I will ever wear it but it certainly would make a nice conversation piece. I think that the circle in the background symbolizes the fortune teller’s crystal ball.
I have found one necklace on line with a description stating that it was from the 1920’s – but I really don’t think so. There is a lot of jewelry for sale that was themed after a 1940’s movie “The Thief of Bagdad.” Many of these pieces are by Alexander Korda – mine is not one of those. The theme seems to be repeated in the 60’s as well as later. Based on the construction, I would guess that my necklace dates to around the middle of the last century or a bit later.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for looking:)
