The 1-inch long leaf-shaped pendant and 12mm tapered round beads are vintage West German from the late 1940s.
Both are opaque white, and the glass pendant has been hand painted with a band of 24 kt gold.
The beads are machine-faceted crystal.
I've added some 4mm vintage hand-faceted white beads, as well as contemporary clear gold lined firepolish crystal and seed beads, and gold-clad pewter findings to make a strand that's about 17-1/2 inches.
It closes with a gold over pewter hook set.
The matching earrings dangle 1-1/4 inches from the tops of their 14 kt gold fill French hooks.
The colour combination is incredibly rich, and just right for any season.
It's another beautiful jewellery set from SPARKLE PLENTY.
