I love Karu Fifth Avenue jewelry, but one doesn’t see much of it. There is more Karu-Ark available.
The metal appears to be brass. Surprisingly, this piece still has all the tiny seed pearls intact. I was amazed. The green glass cabochon isn’t scratched up on the front or back. It’s in surprisingly good condition. I read Karu Fifth Avenue is their earliest mark starting in 1940, so am guesstimating this as one of their earliest pieces. It’s quite dramatic and weighs a ton. It hangs down about 16”. I’ve seen several similar pieces with blue glass, but none with green or the seed pearls.
Thanks for looking!
