Grandmother's Buttons 001-N42B Semplice in Cloud Opal Necklace

1 In stock
This necklace boasts a sumptuous lampworked opal cabochon manufactured in mid-century Czechoslavakia. It is so stunning we decided that this understated but attention-grabbing necklace design required no further garnish.

Bohemian glassmakers were the first to develop methods for press-molding glass in the early 19th century. They began with solid colored glass and then, as their skills grew, started producing multi-colored stones like this one that mimics gems like opals. 

In this piece:

  • Lampworked cloud opal glass cabochon, made in Czechoslovakia, circa 1950
  • A pronged brass setting made today in the USA in vintage dies
  • Antiqued brass chain
  • Length is 16” with a 4” extender
