Hello Jairo,

This is a very pretty necklace, in a style that was popular at the turn of the century. The larger beads with the rings of protrusions call to mind Victorian baubles that were made with set-in circles of precious stones. Venetian beads are often in this style, manipulating colored glass in a murrine technique. The long narrow shape of the necklace, and hanging pendant is a style that was common in the 20s. The color scheme is special; I haven’t seen many necklaces from that time period like this.

You mentioned that you paid $250 for the piece. I do see necklaces like this going for $200 to $300, but oftentimes they are selling for less. I think it’s fair to say the Market Value is between $200 and $300, with the caveat that it might be difficult to find a buyer because many people sell for lower prices.

So, you think this was made in the 90s, or before?

The note attached is actually the original necklace tag. It is brand new. Thank you for your detailed explanation.

I see! The Venetian beads especially look older. Maybe you can check if it's strung on synthetic chord. As far as the style, it is an antique look, but it's totally reasonable that it was strung more recently. I'm looking more closely at the brass beads, and they do look more recent, late 20th century. That also would account for the color combination.
