Authentic Early 1920s Antique Uranium Custard Glass Flapper Necklace

$130.00

I originally purchased this collectable piece of history for my personal collection. This is an authentic custard uranium and onyx flapper necklace from the early 1920s. Czech in origin. It is in found condition.

As much as I love this piece, the cotton cord on it makes me too nervous to wear, and i dont feel comfortable deconstructing it because it is so intact. I’ve spent a while struggling on what to do. If it was broken, I would just restring it or make something glorious with it. I have decided not to keep it. I have a custard necklace that is broken I can re-string, but for this one it feels disrespectful to take it apart.

There is normal signs of wear from age, but it is in great condition for its age. I tried to get several photos to showcase it in its current condition. Pieces like these are more valuable when kept in found condition, however you may do with it what you please.

The internal circumference is about 30 inches, and the entire necklace measures around 20.25 inches long from top to bottom when flat. The fringe portion is about 5 inches long. It comes to my navel on my body, and I have taken a photo on a women’s size medium dress form to give a better idea of the length.

Comes carefully packaged and with a free UV keychain light.

**Uranium glass contains minute amounts of uranium dioxide, and glows under UV black light. Uranium glass level of radioactivity varies by piece, ranging from less than 1 percent to up to 25 percent by weight, but there is no recognized danger to handling or using uranium glass, according to the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission. Uranium glass beads are even further diluted than the glass in glassware, as it is mixed with other glass to make the beads. Under 50CPM is normal levels of background radiation. Under 100CPM is not thought to have any health effects. Outside air in the United States of America averages around 25CPM. I check all my pieces with a geiger meter to make sure they clock in at safe levels.**
