Impressive and quite generous in weight while at the same time not easy to find, the Carmen Beckmann necklace presented here is wrought in sterling and has flat-cut oval amethyst stones adorning its stylized foliate links. Based on design and construction, I tend to believe that this is an early example of Beckmann’s work and it is exquisite…
Size/Weight: 16 1/2″ long (wearable; once clasped, it becomes a little roomier at 16 3/4″); 1″ wide (at its widest); 71.4 grams
Hallmarks / Date: maker’s signature as shown as well as “MEXICO STERLING”; 1960s
Condition: excellent vintage with a very good patina – you could always buff it up a little as I have hardly touched it -, having lusciously colored stones with nice inclusions and no damage noted
SOLD – Thank you!
