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:)

    I really like this. Reminds me of a mind reader I went to see. She wouldn't tell me anything because she already knew I wasn't going to pay her.

    It is pretty interesting isn't it.....not sure if I would wear it either......but can't help looking and wondering about it!!!

    Because of the high detailing and patina, it looks like bronze. What kind of clasp is on the chain?
  6. jscott0363 jscott0363, 1 year ago
    That is a pretty interesting and very cool looking piece!

    I think this is of the same period as the one in the link above. Even the chain is the same - and that's an elaborate chain! Maybe they made them in different metals, I think this one was just never, ever worn and looks new.

    I love it!

    TassieDevil, thanks for your comment. I am glad I am not the only one who would wear it LOL

    It really does look to be of the period. Such a great piece of jewelry!

    jscott0363, I am glad you find it interesting:)

    Celiene, thanks so much for your comment. You are correct, it looks like it was never worn (no surprise; I don't think I will ever ear it either LOL). Because I has no wear, I thought it was a rather recent piece.
