RICARDE OF HOLLYWOOD, Gold toned Filigree Necklace, early 1940s

This Ricarde of Hollywood necklace dates from the early 1940’s. It is believed that this piece is a replica of a necklace worn in the movie Juarez with Bette Davis or possibly from the movie Gone With the Wind. Some Gone with the Wind researchers claim that it matches a bracelet with red stones, which was worn by Belle Watling in the movie. This necklace is beautifully designed with raised intricate fretwork and the stones are rhinestones or possibly paste.
