This necklace I purchased at the Hell's Kitchen Flea Market in New York. It is vintage Cadoro, a line that was sold to Saks Fifth Avenue in the 1950 and 1960s. The intricate nature of this necklace drew me to it. The pink section are beads and the metal balls alternate in a silver and gold pattern.
Cadoro Inc. NY was a costume jewelry brand founded in 1945 and closed in 1970. The jewelry was hand crafted using brush-gold toned and silver toned metals. I love when I can find out information about the history of a vintage piece.
