The 8mm round and bicone crystal beads are a lovely dove gray with an aurora boreale finish.
The opaque red glass cones that flank the round crystal beads are vintage West German from the late 1940s.
The combination of geometric shapes and opaque colours is typical of art deco design.
I've filled out the 18-1/2" strand with 4mm opaque red Czech firepolish crystal and glowing gray seed beads.
The necklace closes with a sterling silver lobsterclaw clasp.
It's another pleasing period piece from SPARKLE PLENTY.
