Poor Mouchette | Curated Antique Jewelry, Vintage Jewelry & Engagement Rings | Portland, Oregon | A very cool, late-vintage, 18k yellow gold necklace, composed of hand-finished (filed and polished), navette-shaped beads. These individually cast beads are plump, with flat faces, straight sides, and gently rounded points— they spin freely on their slender cable, creating subtle, shining texture and illusory variation in form.

This short necklace is layering hero! We love its weightiness, its repeating forms, and the different-but-same aesthetic they create! This necklace closes with an oversized toggle clasp. It is marked 18k for purity, and by the maker (a stylized, serif "P"), and with the letters CAN (probably indicating a Canadian designer). This necklace is well-suited to all genders.
