This late-1950s pineapple bead necklace illustrates a typical Carnegie theme – flora – with a clever combination of materials. Textured, gold-tone pineapple-shaped beads alternating with small carnelian-glass beads form the main necklace. Gold-tone beads in various shapes combined with onyx- and carnelian-glass beads dangle from the entire length of the piece. This elaborate fringe necklace closes with a pineapple-shaped concealed clasp. This jewel is the perfect adornment for a scoop-neck or strapless garment.
