78 Richelieu Pearl Necklace - Stunning
by: Anonymous

I found a Richelieu necklace for $285 USD - it is stunning!

The vintage necklace features faux pearls, of several different sizes and shapes, in 6 strands on each side, strung from the back of a beautiful center pendant of a gold tone metal, studded with four more faux pearls and a few "jewels".

It is signed Richelieu on the back of the pendant. The clasp is a single faux pearl with insert, the same type as used on fine jewelry. This necklace is in very good condition, no damage, no repairs, very little wear. It is very elegant when worn, drapes beautifully. Laid flat open, the necklace measures 17 & 1/2" long; and the pendant is 2" tall.

"Richelieu" is a brand name for Pearls, by Jos H. Myer Bros.

Richelieu Inc. was a pearl manufacturer in New York City which formed in January 1933.

The business was incorporated through the merger of Heller-Deltah Company and Joseph H. Meyer Brothers. The former firm made Deltah, La Tausca, and Bluebird pearls. The latter produced Richelieu pearls. Richelieu Inc., had its offices at 8 West 30th Street in Manhattan (New York).

The original company was founded by Joseph H. Meyer & Brothers in Brooklyn, New York, in 1911. Richelieu pearls were popular as an affordable alternative to Natural pearls; for women who were looking for inexpensive yet attractive Pearls.
