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 first necklace is the longer of the two and has smaller mm size transparent bakelite beads. The graduated bakelite beads range in size from 9mm x 6mm to 22mm x 15mm and have great glisten power. This is from the 1930’s and has a hidden celluloid clasp with bakelite covering.
This first transparent necklace provides a more elegant look, one that is more graceful and refined. Two different looks, two diverse necklaces. Both great!
The necklace measures 16” 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.
