This estate poppy red beaded necklace and earring set was stored in a vintage Sarah Coventry box, but none of these pieces are marked with the brand, so this was more likely a storage spot. The necklace is dual stranded, with the lower strand comprised of beads that are slightly larger than the upper. The clip on earrings are button style, a cluster of 6 of the same beads in the necklace mounted on a brass clip on backing.
This set will be shipped in the vintage Sarah Coventry jewellery box pictured.
The necklace measures 15 1/2" at the shortest point, but can be lengthened to 17 1/2" with the extension piece. So that this doesn't fit totally taut around the neck and with a bit of drape, it would likely look best fastened at 16"-17 1/2".
These measure approximately 2.3 cm tall by 2.1 cm wide.
Condition: This vintage red necklace set is in good vintage condition. Much of the AB coating has worn off the beads in the necklace. There is a gap in the lower strand of the necklace, though whether this is because a bead has fallen off or the thread has slackened with time is unclear. Overall, this vintage necklace set appears to be in good condition. The earrings look like they may have been worn less than the necklace, with a fairly even AB coating, and fully functional brass backings.

Shipping costs are the cost of mailing an item, along with any necessary packing/packaging materials. If shipping costs seem high, sometimes they are. When estimating for the purposes of listing an item on Etsy, I have to list the most expensive possible shipping destination in a given country. More expensive items are shipped with tracking and insurance, which adds to the cost. If the difference between my shipping estimate and actual costs are greater than $2, I will refund you the difference.
If you are thinking of purchasing an item, contact me with your postal or mailing code, and I will check the precise shipping costs. For less expensive items (under $50), I am willing to ship by cheaper options, but please be aware that this can extend shipping times by 4 to 8 weeks for international shipping to some destinations, and can eliminate the ability to track or insurance the package.
In short, not turning a profit on postage, but need to cover the costs getting lovely jewellery from me to you!
