I'll admit...I am a Czech jewelry fanatic. Not the new pieces, but the really old ones that aren't made any more. Take this gorgeous pink glass piece. All the factories that produced these fine pieces were turned into ammunitions factories during the World Wars. The art disappeared and though new pieces are being created, they can't compare to the quality of the Deco era pieces.
The colors are sublime...rich deep colors. Even though most of the pieces were glass, the quality is that of fine jewelry. The purple in this Czech necklace plus the marcasite is over the top!
