I have collected three of these beautiful leaf necklaces. I believe they were made in the fifties, but they could also be older.
The hand carved mother of pearl leaves all have a different shape and they have been applied to a some sort of ribbon or cord. The claps is original and it fits in nicely with the rest of the design.
It's a nice delicate necklace and it gets lots of attention when I wear it.
Mother of pearl isn't an expensive material. Its easy to carve and easy to find.
Over the years I collected lots of other mother of pearl jewelry. I will post some of them later.
So when do you think this necklace was made?
