Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
It is a beautiful vintage necklace. Such vintage jewellery are being offered at auction on a regular basis.
The necklace appears to be made of gilted metal based on the photo of the mark on the necklace. The design is very charming and trendy. It was probably made around the middle of the 20th century. It is the type of jewellery that would be name bijouterie as these pieces were often very fashionable but made with less expensive materials like gilted metal and cut glass.
The estimate provided is for a well-advertised specialised online jewellery auction, where I believe the bees necklace has the best chance of realising its fullest potential. However, there is no measurement for the sentimental value you might attach to the lovely piece of jewellery. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and vary.
Please let me know if you have any additional questions. I’m happy to help.
