Hand-Cut Quartz Necklace
This dazzling designer Hand-Cut Quartz Necklace by Katherine Kornblau is once again a glamorous statement piece—for jeans or that little black dress. This runway-worthy stunner arrays hand-sculpted beads of composite quartz with the rich look of uncut gems. Silver-plated large lobster claw clasp and extender chain. Handmade in the U.S.A. Each will vary slightly. 18.5"l. with 2"l. extender.
During the 50s and 60s, contemporary jewelry often featured asymmetrical designs. Well-represented in the costume collection of our National Museum of American History, chunky necklaces like this dazzling designer strand were all the rage.
Every Smithsonian purchase will arrive with a museum provenance card explaining how it is adapted from or inspired by an object or objects in our collection.
