This necklace shows off two stunning vintage German hand-pressed glass cabochons in complementary shades of violet. We named it Ione, a girl's name of Greek origin meaning violet.

Anchoring this necklace is a piece of hand-pressed agate glass, perfectly complemented by a lighter violet moonstone nestled above the brass stamping. 

After the Second World War, German glass artists advanced the Bohemian glass-making trade by inventing marbled agate glass. They melted canes of colored glass over a lampworking flame, blended in bits of clear glass, and then hand-pressed the mixture into molds. 

In this piece:

  • Violet agate glass cabochon, made in West Germany, circa 1950-1960
  • Violet moonstone cabochon, made in West Germany, circa 1950-1960
  • Brass filigree stamping made today in the USA in vintage dies
  • Brass settings stamped today in the USA in vintage dies
  • Antiqued brass chain
  • Length is 18” with a 4” extender
