1960s Goldette Chandelier Bijoux Drop Necklace



1960s dramatic oversized Goldette glass chandelier drop necklace! The necklace is gold - tone and rope - textured. Necklace features seven hanging strands of graduated lengths, composed of alternating glass chandelier jewels in teardrop frames. The necklace, with its oversized jewels and rope design, is an elegant 20th century take on ornate Victorian drop necklaces, in keeping with Goldette's tendency to do 19th century revival pieces. Signed "Goldette" on clasp.

Goldette was founded in 1958, by Ben Gartner of Circle Jewellery Products - New York City. The company produced costume jewelry inspired by Victorian motifs, and used the same decorative techniques to emulate the styles of that era. Goldette closed in the late 1970s.
