Vintage gold chain necklace. 18k gold, lac and cotton thread. Made in India, 50-80 years ago. Unisex - suitable for a man or a woman.

Measurements: Total length is a little over 27 inches (69cm) long, including the thread which is approximately 5 1/4 inches (14cm) long. Weight is 22.8 grams, inclusive of thread.

Description : Classic olive pit shaped beads of gold filled with a hard resin, called lac. Beads are connected via metallic-gold-colored thread. Further thread at the back extends the length of the necklace in typical Indian fashion. Similar necklaces are still being made today, a reflection of the versatility and popularity of the design. This is a vintage example.
This is a most versatile necklace. Suitable to be worn by anyone looking to complete an outfit, look smart and brighten up their appearance.

Marks and Metal: As with all old Indian jewelry, there are no marks. The gold was electronically tested as 20k and we will guarantee 18k to err on the side of caution.

Condition: Good with negligible wear commensurate with age. Thread at back shows minor signs of wear commensurate with age and use. Please see enlarged pictures and don't hesitate to ask questions which we will do our best to answer.
