I find this agate necklace with unusual shape of stones unique and wonderful. The previous owner told me she had gotten the necklace from an older relative some time back and thought it was bought in brazil in the 60's. She was given it with this vintage box and therefore she thought that this necklace was made by the company. There is no mark on the necklace but the style and vintage "feel" of this necklace makes me think it is posible it is from that time. When I searched online I found information on the internet that the company is headquartered in Brasil. The information said the first store was opened on the Rio de Janeiro docks in 1949, the point of arrival for international passengers on cruise ships. Later they have moved to make exklusive high end jewelry. I can't tell if that information is correct nor if it is likely that they made this necklace. If anyone know more or has any ideas on it, please enlighten me.
I find it to be of high quality how the stones have been shaped and assembled together but the wire and clasp is rather simple.
Update of my question:
When I red about the company it seems one could interpret it as if they first worked with precious stones and later changed into more exclusive fashioned jewelry. Could a simple design go together with the selling of jewelry to tourists at the docs with the focus on the stone rather than the whole setting? Any one who knows? Thankful for information and any corrections since I don't have answers only questions.
