Size: heart pendant measures 1.5” by 1.5” and the chain is 20” long
Label: none (stamped “STERLING” on the clasp)
This circa 1940s sweetheart necklace combines a clear lucite heart pendant with a sterling silver Cupid’s arrow and a fine sterling chain. Nicely made, the arrow on the pendant is inserted into the lucite with tiny screws, rather than glued on. The chain fastens with a sport clasp (a version of a spring ring clasp that has a smaller ridge for opening it than modern spring clasps do). In excellent condition, this darling heart pendant would make a “lovely” gift!
What looks like orange discoloration on the lucite is actually just a reflection of my orange sweater on the day I was photographing this pendant--oops! :)
