Alice Caviness necklace is a unique mix of beautiful, striated glass beads in a luscious, deep mint green, with smaller elongated and faceted beads, mottled olive green and black plastic square beads that look and feel like bakelite (but do not test), mint green rhinestones and mint green rhinestone rondelles in gold tone metal, with mint green enameled bead caps and star-shaped crystal beads for a very unusual "shades of green" fashion mix dating Ca. 1960. The necklace measures a wearable length of approximately 28" and is in Excellent Condition except for the clasp which we consider Very Good because it has some flecks to the plating which surprised us upon magnification because it looks excellent to the naked eye. It has a mint green rhinestone appointed box clasp in a florentined gold tone design that is signed "ALICE CAVINESS" on the reverse. True to Caviness's reputation, this quality necklace reminds us of some of the best of Vendome because of unusual mix and out-of-the-ordinary components. A wonderful example of the costume jewelry artistry of Alice Caviness, whose designs are less often found but highly regarded by collectors. (#45450-CavinessNecklaceGreenBeadsVintageRT)
