You and I Vintage Necklace with Primitive Tribal Theme and Wood Accents

Bitchin Retro


Vintage necklace from designer You & I, and very unique. Large iridescent faux shells are the base for chocolate brown wood navettes, and secured by gold wires which totally encircle the shells. In between each of these wonders is a gold tone flared accent, and all are suspended by a link chain. We see this as caveman primitive - a hunter/gatherer kind of piece! Kidding aside, no matter what the outfit, this necklace would really steal the show. Costume designers, take note!

17" long with a 3" extender chain. 2 1/4" x 1 3/4" iridescent faux shells

We clean, inspect and return vintage treasures to their best possible condition. Decades of old makeup, dirt and dust are removed and pieces receive a light polish. This process takes many attempts and sometimes hours of work. This is in stark contrast to most sellers. Our vintage jewelry is ready to wear, and in the best possible condition we were able to provide. It is a labor of love, and we think it shows in our photos and in person.

Bitchin Retro Notes: This necklace is in very good vintage condition. The only wear we see is on the gold flared "beads" and generally not visible at a conversational distance, but was definitely observed thru a loupe. Please see condition descriptions below.

Vintage jewelry is rarely perfect. We will do our best to note any obvious flaws, but flea bites, and small scratches are to be expected. Please view all photos with zoom to see characteristics of this listing, and note the measurements provided, as we use a telephoto lens to show as much visual detail as we can, and this may enhance size perception. We would be happy to answer any questions, or provide additional photos. 

Condition Descriptions: 

Excellent = very little to no visible wear, though minimal flea bites/scratches may be seen thru a loupe or magnification. 

Very Good = normal wear and tear typical for the age which can be seen up close, as well as flea bites/scratches seen thru a loupe.

Average = significant wear seen with and without a loupe. We will note specifics and provide photos.

We want you to be happy with your purchase, and have provided information to highlight the features and any imperfections or vintage love on our pieces. We also share condition descriptions (and lots of pictures) so that you are aware of how we arrived at our opinion. If despite our best efforts we miss something, we will be happy to work with you. 

Give us an opportunity to make it right...because we will.
