Ainsley Necklace in Sapphire
The stars of this necklace design are a brilliant sapphire and Goldstone Cherry Brand glass cabochon and a one-of-a-kind antique button.
Each antique button is a one and only, chosen just for you, and so will not be identical to the image.
Cherry Brand glass was made in Osaka by Japanese rice farmers moonlighting as glass artisans during the American occupation of Japan after WWII.
