Vintage Hollycraft Opal Pendant


Magical Gold tone faux Opal pendant necklace by Hollycraft c.1950′s. The shield shaped pendant is an ornate design set with gorgeous imitation opal glass cabochons and sparkling clear crystal rhinestones in round and baguette shapes. The necklace measures 16 inches or 41cm long and the centerpiece of the necklace measures 4.5 x 3.5cm. It is in excellent vintage condition with very light age wear to the plating on the back of the pendant. Marked: Hollycraft About the Designer: Hollycraft 1938-1971 Originally called the Hollywood Jewelry Manufacturing Co, Hollycraft was founded in New York in 1938 by Armenian Joseph Chorbajian. In 1948 to avoid confusion with the existing brand Joseff of Hollywood, the Hollycraft name was introduced. Hollycraft pieces are always signed, but those from the 1950’s are often marked with their exact date of production as well. In 1970 Chorbajian sold the company and production ceased shortly afterwards. Their most popular designs are the pieces in the pastel colour combination from the 1950’s.
