Found by Diana Eng, these necklaces were uncovered from boxes of unsold inventory buried in a costume jewelry company’s warehouse in the NYC Garment District. Refurbished and inspected with care, each one is given a new and vibrant life. The glass beads offer a brighter, more intense red than the plastic beads commonly used in today’s costume jewelry.
One necklace comes packaged in a glassine envelope. Available in six styles and three lengths, choker (15.5 inches), princess (19 inches), and matinee (24 inches). View large images of bead styles on our blog.
Vintage glass beads, brass components some original some new as needed.
