Persian Style Necklace w Earrings Silver w Agates 1970s Jewelry $120

Persian Style Necklace w Earrings Silver w Agates 1970s Jewelry


This Persian style necklace with matching pierced chandelier earrings is a very unique vintage set. It was made in the late 1970s or early 1980s in North Africa or India.

The set is hand made silver wire jewelry and is also sometimes called paddle jewelry. Notice all the many different designs on these pieces : dangling paddles, rope wire, loops, scrolls, curves, circles, bars, cones, and geometric hearts and V's.

Persian style jewelry such as this set was predominantly made in India in the 1970s and 1980s but it was also made in Egypt, Morocco, and Tunisia. It was very popular ethnic import jewelry for a short period of time and now, you just don't see it anymore. Perhaps the labor intensive manner in which it was made and the cost of metal has driven this style out of production.

The necklace has a pendant lavaliere and the tear drop stone is a moss green agate; the same as on the chandelier earrings. The glowing light yellow/green nuggets are Mother of Pearl. The earrings have French ear wires with safety back closures. The necklace chain is an antique style book chain design of sorts.

The necklace can be hooked up to 16 " or 40.6 cm long. The earrings are 3 1/8" or 78 mm long.

Both necklace and earrings are in pristine clean like new condition with no imperfections or flaws. The set is not signed.

Comes gift wrapped and shipped in a new luxury presentation jewelry box.

If the necklace is not long enough for you, you can add a custom made silver metal 4" extension chain below that will allow the necklace to be hooked between 16" and 20" long.
