Two brilliant emerald and sapphire goldstone glass cabochons center the cascade of glass in this simple but decadent necklace. 

We were overjoyed when we discovered these mid-century Japanese cabochons wrapped in their original tissue paper, sealed with an orange sakura blossom label, in an east coast warehouse.

This distinctive label revealed their identity as Cherry Brand glass which was made in Osaka during the American occupation after WW II. They were produced by rice farmers moonlighting as glass artisans.

A vintage hand-pressed Czech glass bead anchors the necklace while an antique, one-of-a-kind, Victorian-era button holds the top position.

Every antique button is a one and only, chosen just for you, and so will not be identical to the image. 

In this piece:

  • Antique metal button, circa 1880-1900
  • Two lampworked Cherry Brand glass cabochons made in Japan between 1945 & 1951
  • Vintage Czech glass cabochon
  • Four antiqued-brass pewter settings made in Louisiana
  • Antiqued brass chain 
  • Length is 17” with a 4” extender
