Transparent bakelite is a collector’s dream delight because as the light and sun shine through hues sparkle and shimmer and create the look of real jewels. And this is never more true than with diamond cut necklaces and bracelets.
Popular in the 1930’s and 1940’s these are real gems if you can find them today. And I have two to offer! This second necklace is the shorter of the two and is considered a choker bakelite necklace. It has larger mm size transparent bakelite beads.
The graduated bakelite beads range in size from 9mm x 6mm to 28mm x 22mm and have tremendous shimmer and shine. This is also from the 1930’s and has a barrel metal clasp.
This second transparent necklace provides a more substantial and chunky look, one that is more significant in stature and size. Two different looks, two diverse necklaces. Both great!
The necklace measures 14” and is in excellent vintage condition with no cracks or splits and guaranteed to be vintage bakelite. It is strung well and does not need restringing.
