These fruit beads while newly made are from original molds from the same Czech bead factory popular in the 30-50’s if you research vintage jewelry-fruit you will most definitely run into these beauties. They are a wonderful example of vintage inspiration and longevity. On a delicate chain which keeps the weight down. This necklace is s favorite of mine -fun to layer or stands alone. A real treasure. Great gift or treat yourself. Thanks for looking!
