Vintage Panetta Faux Champagne Pearl Beaded Necklace


This double-strand, faux pearl, beaded necklace was made by the American vintage jewellery company, Panetta.  With its champagne-coloured glass beads and rhinestone-encrusted decorative central pendant this necklace would be perfect as bridal jewellery.  Each pearl has been hand-knotted in place, ensuring the beads don't rub together.  The necklace fastens with a push clasp which has been decorated with a single clear crystal.  

It's stamped 'PANETTA' on the back of the pendant, without the © symbol, indicating it was made before 1955.

Panetta's goal was to make costume jewellery that looked like the real thing.  That goal was achieved with this piece.

Condition: The pearls are in excellent condition having maintained their lustre, with those closest to the ends of the strands very slightly darkened.  The crimping beads at the ends of the strands have lost their plating.

Era 1950s

The Panetta company of New York was founded in 1945 by Beneditto Panetta.  An Italian immigrant, he had been a jeweler in his former home of Naples, Italy. Panetta jewellery is very collectable due to the fine quality, attention to detail and the limited numbers produced.  

How do you rate the condition of a piece?

Excellent - No visible flaws to note but items may exhibit some signs of age related wear
Very Good - Some visible flaws which aren't considered to impair the wearability of the piece
Good - Some more notable flaws but the piece is still in collectible condition

All items are vintage and have lived a previous life, therefore signs of age related wear are to be expected. I do my best to bring attention to any faults in the description and by using the condition scale.
