Vintage AA Gem Purple Amethyst Bead Necklace ,Cape Amethyst, Chinese Mandarin Court Cloisonne
Vintage Chinese Mandarin Court Cloisonne Filigree turquoise, purple, cinnabar red , Vintage AA Grade Amethyst Beads, Vintage Cape Amethyst Beads, Vintage Pakistani Handmade White Brass Bead
Beautifully translucent gem quality AA grade vintage deep purple amethyst beads in 6mm and 10mm have been combined with vintage cape amethyst semiprecious stone beads in both 10mm and 12mm.
This 30" long hand knotted necklace also features a very rare type of vintage Chinese cloisonne known as Mandarin Court style - an open work enamel bead with vivid rich colors in turquoise, lapis blue, and cinnabar red.
These RARE and unusual cloisonne beads are 15mm ( there are 25mm to the inch ).
►Cloisonne from the 1970s - 1980s is quite sought after and valuable because of the exquisite workmanship and attention to detail unlike the cloisonne being currently produced and exported from China.◀
The cloisonne beads frame 22mm handmade white brass beads from Pakistan - beads that we purchased ourselves during the 1980's in a little 'hole in the wall' shop up by the Khyber Pass in Pakistan in the early 1980's!
►Please stop by my blog www.debbyaremdesigns.com and scroll down a ways to see photos and to read about this incredible trip that I made with my husband so many years ago.◀
These handmade white brass beads have a wonderful stippled effect. Vintage white brass spacer beads from this same trip add yet another shape and texture.
I've dyed the silk cord a light violet color to match the cape amethyst.
This long elegant necklace will arrive in a vintage Chinese embroidered silk purse all ready for gift giving.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: POSTAGE RATES HAVE RISEN DRAMATICALLY IN 2020
ORDERS INSIDE USA: A charge of $4.00 covers any first class shipment up to 15 ounces. Our beads vary so much in weight that it is impossible for us to apply a single add-on charge for multiple product orders. We will continue to refund to customers any amount that greatly exceeds our actual cost of shipping and handling.
ORDERS OUTSIDE USA: International First Class rates are now crazy: $16.50 for any package weighing from 1-5 ounces. Even an order for 2-3 small bead items may cost $16.50 or more, depending on the type of material (stone versus resin, for example). We apologize in advance if we have to adjust the postage cost of an order that has been placed. We will understand if an order is rescinded when the postage cost is too high relative to the product value.
All international orders have contents described as "loose beads" and are flagged as "commercial samples" or " gift" if you prefer to make your life easier when receiving your beads. If you'd like us to mark your order as " gift" instead please let us know!
All our beads are inspected one by one before being shipped. They are individually wrapped to protect them and then put in little plastic ziploc bags.
All vintage beaded jewelry is either shipped in a little gift box tied with a ribbon or in a vintage Chinese embroidered silk purse.
If you ever have a problem with a damaged bead or jewelry, don't hesitate to contact us. We are only human, and with so many orders going out on a daily basis, there is always room for error. We will replace your order (assuming we have more in stock), issue you a store credit, or give you a full refund if the item is returned in the same condition as it was shipped within 7 days of receiving your order if you are not fully satisfied. You must notify us as soon as you receive your order if there is a problem.

Nice beads!! Super fast thanks a lot!!!
I have dreamed of having a necklace such as the jade one. But the red one. That was a surprise. Both are beautiful. Thank you! Best, Jane
Lovely color;!interesting stones.
When I thought that I had ordered two of these and then checked out I had to order another set. The seller was very kind and combined my two orders and refunded my shipping.
Nice quick shipping on some hard to find items! Good packaging too!
