Beautiful signed Joseph Warner 1950's black and crystal rhinestone glass necklace/choker.

The center section is approx 1" on the drop.
A little history on Joseph Warner jewelry: Joseph Warner started his company in 1953. The Warner jewelry produced is known for its high quality workmanship and superior and brilliant rhinestones. Warner jewelry is not very common and because of its better quality of workmanship, superior rhinestones, and hand setting each stone, Warner jewelry commands above average prices. Jewelry marked Warner or Joseph Warner is very scarce and hard to find.
Condition: Very good antique condition with typical wear due to age and handling. No missing stones. Upon very close inspection I noticed there are 2 of the crystal rhinestones, when turned at a certain angle, show some darkening. Stating for accuracy purposes. As you can see in the photos, when worn, this is a very bright and shiny necklace/choker with lots of bling!
