Vintage Strand of Graduated Amber Beads Description and Item Information Up for sale is this beautiful necklace made from vintage amber beads. Please excuse the glare in the photos. The spherical amber beads are nicely strung on a brown cord, with knots in between the beads. There is a vintage Chinese oval vermeil silver clasp.

The beads are graduated, with the larger beads near the center. The necklace weighs approximately 44.2 grams, and there are 35 beads. The length, from end to end, is about 19 3/8 inches.

The wearable length is about 1/4 inch less, since one end of the clasp inserts into the other end. One of the smallest beads is approximately 5/16 inch across and the largest bead is approximately 3/4 inch across. There is variation in color (lighter and darker), with colors that resemble butterscotch. These beads would be a wonderful addition to a collection of amber jewelry.

Identification The exact age of the beads is not known, but they are vintage. The beads are made from amber. I do not know from what region the amber is. The vermeil clasp is marked, SILVER MADE IN CHINA.

Condition This necklace looks good overall, with light wear from use. There are some fine wear marks and minor imperfections.

The largest bead has chips/flakes adjacent to its hole on both side. The larger flake on the largest bead measures approximately 3/16 inch by 3/8 inch. There are some smaller chips and flakes near the holes of some of the other beads. Please see the examples in the photos.
